Introductory talk and training materials provided. All residents participate in both a survey of experiences and attitudes towards cultural competency and patient-centered communication, and have the opportunity to participate in a Meyers Briggs personality assessment.
Noon conferences, Grand Rounds, Round Tables and lunches and other creative programming provide a didactic and interactive opportunity to cover a broad curriculum related to cultural competency.
We seek to embed learning opportunities around cultural competency into daily clinical practice and the environment. An innovative program in which residents are observed by a psychologist and given directed feedback and evaluation around communication skills, cultural competency and patient centered care is ongoing in the medicine clinic.
Work with faculty and chief residents to support cultural competency training opportunities across the curriculum through workshops, independent learning plans and other opportunities.
Develop partnerships with community-based organizations to provide new learning opportunities for residents to experience as well as to bring community resources directly to the patients we serve in the clinical setting.
Elective Rotations and Projects:
Offer residents the opportunity to focus on this area through elective rotations and individual projects as well as embed issues of cultural competency in ongoing projects and initiatives.
Work to support an institutional culture conducive to culturally competent, patient centered care.
ACGME Competency Based Education:
Support achievement of ACGME competencies for residents.
