AMA wants docs trained for teams, safety
Modern Physician

In a major effort to revamp the nation’s medical education system, the American Medical Association will award $10 million in competitive grants to medical schools that develop innovative curricula on subjects like team-based care and patient safety.

The goal is to narrow the gap between how physicians are currently trained and the future needs of the U.S. healthcare system. “Rapid changes in healthcare require a transformation in the way we train future physicians,” Dr. Jeremy Lazarus, president of the AMA, said in a news release.
