National speaker series cultivates insight
To learn from best practices and obtain national perspectives on the development of community medical education programs, the Medical College of Wisconsin launched a speaker series in August. Three national experts have participated in presentations to date, and additional speakers will be invited to present as the series continues.
The first expert to speak was E. Eugene Marsh, III, MD, Senior Associate Dean for the University Park Regional Campus of Penn State College of Medicine and Associate Director of the Penn State Hershey Medical Group for Centre County. In his Aug. 2 talk, Regional Medical Campuses: 20 years of Experience with the Challenges, Advantages, and Tremendous Opportunities for Medical Education, Dr. Marsh shared his knowledge and expertise in developing community medical education programs at medical schools in Alabama and Pennsylvania.
The series continued on Aug. 8 with William J. Hueston, MD, Professor of Family Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Hueston discussed Community-based Education: Models for Innovation.
Betsy Goebel Jones, EdD, Professor and Vice Chair of Family and Community Medicine at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, presented Accelerated MD Programs on Aug. 10. She provided insight on the development and implementation of an accelerated medical education program in family medicine.
