Second Annal Report for Training Program for Neighborhood Physicians. Final Report.
Howard Univ., Washington, DC. Coll. of Medicine.
The purpose of the Howard University training program for neighborhood physicians is to engage these physicians in services stressing ambulatory patient care, while at the same time creating in them a sense of responsibility. One of the major reasons for initiating this program was the realization that until a few years ago many of the black physicians in Washington, D.C. had little or no affiliations with the local hospitals and thus had no opportunity to continue their medical education and practice pattern improvement. The Howard University program used existing community and university health services and paramedical agencies to form an educational comprehensive medical care service. The neighborhood physician became part of the university staff. This report presents information on: (1) the development of the Department of Family Practice; (2) the educational activities engaged in; (3) the application of findings of the continuing medical program; (4) the objectives and accomplishments of the contract; (5) the satellite program in Baltimore; and (6) a prototype model kit. The appendix includes samples of participant and faculty correspondence and a schedule of activities in June and July. (AF)
