Education and Training
Education and training permeate every aspect of the Center’s activities. We learn from each patient we treat, and what we learn from each patient enhances the quality of care of subsequent patients. Our clinical work forms a core component of our education programs and generates questions we seek to answer in our research. Our education and training programs transform the thinking and the clinical care of those who train with us and this generates an educational ripple effect: the physicians and nurses we train become change-agents and leaders in the positive transformation of our healthcare system.
Since 1995, over one thousand students and clinicians have completed these programs.
Our extensive education programs include classes for:
- Medical students
- Other health care professionals
- Undergraduate and graduate non-medical students
- Interested public
Since 2008, more than 100 students have enrolled. Students have come not only the undergraduate and graduate population form University of California campuses but also from other universities in the U.S. as well as from Japan, Korea, and Singapore.
