Patrick W. Kelley, MD, DrPH presented on March 18th at 9:05am.

The U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) is on track to launch a new Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education in February 2012, inspired in large part by a Lancet Commission report and spearheaded by Commissioner Patrick Kelley, MD, DrPH, who is director of the Board on Global Health at IOM. Twenty academic leaders from around the country were members of the Commission, which called for competency-based curricula, creative use of information technology, transformative learning, and inter-professional teamwork.
