Transformation In Medical Education


The goal of the A PRIME TIME partnership is to develop a new model of physician education that will be widely recognized for its innovative approach and educational effectiveness as well as the professionalism of its graduates.

This proposal will detail a strategy to develop a unique program of medical education for a 21st century Texas that will be accessible to diverse groups of students and produce competent and compassionate physicians more efficiently and effectively,foster students to become caring and compassionate physicians by learning about the impact and expectations of a career in medicine while developing a professional identity early in their academic timetable, enable academic and medical institutions to jointly create a more efficient, coordinated, comprehensive, and relevant curriculum in a shortened timeframe and format, provide physicians trained and assessed in a range of cognitive, affective, and psycho-motor traits throughout their undergraduate and medical education, and, ultimately, achieve better health care outcomes for Texas.
