Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation Funds New Medical School Curriculum
As the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine at Cleveland prepares to launch a groundbreaking experiment in training the primary care physician of the future, endorsement of the project has come in the form of a major grant to train faculty in improved teamwork teaching practices.
The two-year, $299,272 award from the New York-based Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation is one of only three board grants bestowed by the foundation in 2017. Founded in 1930, Macy is the only national foundation dedicated to improving the training of health professionals.
“We are excited to be recognized by the Macy Foundation for the work we are doing,” said Heritage College, Cleveland, Dean Isaac Kirstein, D.O. “This is a great opportunity to align education and care delivery. The award will allow us to develop new models of training physicians while enhancing patient care.”...
