To prepare students to practice patient-centered and effective medicine, despite current health care system challenges, a longitudinal curriculum based on patient-centered medical home (PCMH) principles was developed and implemented. The experience’s framework is ½ day/week over 6 months, preceptor mentored, with a patient panel for the student to follow over time. Teaching tools and modules, focusing on the core concepts of team-based care, population management, medication safety, care transition, motivational interviewing, and self-management were developed to enhance students’ skills and support immediate applicability of the concepts. Evaluation of the curriculum includes collection of information regarding changes in students’ attitudes, knowledge, and skills; focus groups; and patient outcomes. This session will share our experiences, tools, and outcomes in an effort to support PCMH curriculum development by others.
