A group of four faculty at osteopathic medical colleges and one physician assistant faculty member convened at the AACOM offices to develop the presentation:
- Robert M. Gum, DO, MPH, FACPM, WVSOM Statewide Campus Regional Assistant Dean;
- John C. Pellosie, Jr., D.O., MPH, FAOCOPM, NSU Chair of Preventive Medicine;
- V. James Guillory, DO, MPH, ACPM, ATSU-SOMA Professor of Public Health;
- Howard S. Teitelbaum, DO, PhD, MPH, LMU-DCOM Associate Dean of Research, Grants, & Sponsored Programs and Professor of Internal Medicine and Public Health; and
- James F. Cawley, MPH, PA-C, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Prevention and Community Health School of Public Health and Health Services Director, PA/MPH Program School of Medicine and Health Sciences The George Washington University - created the presentation and helped pilot the project.
The goal of the work session was to produce a preventive medicine presentation focusing specifically on teaching students (and others) to use electronic tools to incorporate prevention into clinical practice. The presentation was previewed at UMDNJ and WVSOM and at Western University.
The presentation is available on the AHRQ and AACOM websites for use by those teaching at colleges of osteopathic medicine, or as a self-directed teaching tool. (Note: funding for this project was obtained through a partnership with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Health Research & Educational Trust (in conjunction with the American Hospital Association).
