Work on the Patient-Centered Medical Home Education Pilot Project in Ohio continues. Besides transforming 50 sites around the state into patient-centered medical homes, the project implements a medical school curriculum that will help prepare future physicians to practice in this new setting. Richard J. Snow, DO, of Columbus, who is leading the curriculum reform effort, was interviewed by Primary Care Progress (PCP) about his work: http://primarycareprogress.org/learn/interviews .
Primary Care Progress is a non-profit foundation, based Boston, MA, which is a growing network of medical providers, health professional trainees, policy pundits, advocates, and educators. The Ohio Department of Health has invited PCP to Ohio to help create a vision for revitalizing the primary care workforce pipeline through strategic local advocacy that promotes primary care and transforms care delivery and training in academic settings.
