At a time when health care costs and outcomes in the U.S. are under fire and physician burnout is at epidemic levels, medical education across the country is undergoing significant change. Which changes will best prepare today’s medical students to be the doctors who will improve the health of our communities, as well as the health of healers? Dr. Dodson will explore the changes going on in medical education and health care delivery to answer questions about what it will take to improve health care outcomes.
