Description

A New Way to Serve the Community

A study of a major initiative that is changing the course of medical education--the Community Partnerships, sponsored by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. Rather than promote a single solution, Community Partnerships bridge the gap that exists between the culture of communities and the culture of academe by creating viable linking organizations to connect the two. This book also examines the role public policy plays in contributing to the current systems of health professions' education and how public policy can support change.
