Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in Medical Education: Reflections from an Academic Health Center

By | July 1, 2004

Case`s curricula in prevention and community health were inventoried in detail by Dr. David Litaker, Center Director, Dr. Randall Cebul, and other School of Medicine faculty and reported in the July, 2004 issue of Academic Medicine. Findings were compared with national recommendations and the perceptions of Case`s recent graduates about the adequacy of their preparation in these areas. The authors make recommendations about how these subjects can be better integrated throughout the curriculum and reinforced through formal practice- and community-based opportunities in students` training.Academic Medicine, Dr. Randall Cebul,Dr. David Litaker
