Final Report. Training Program for Neighborhood Physicians.
Howard Univ., Washington, DC. Coll. of Medicine.
This is the final report for a three-year contract in health manpower development. The contract, awarded to Howard University in 1969, was actuated in January 1969 and extended to August 1972. The contract period has been marked by a large variety of progressive activity and creation of programs. These include the development of an attractive community physician continuing medical education program, American Academy of Family Practice memberships for community physicians, a Family Practice Residency, a Department of Family Practice, a progressive educational program for family physicians including an intensive review course, multiple successful candidates for the Board of Family Practice, a student teaching program in Family Practice, and a community physicians preceptorship for freshmen and sophomores. This report describes the further development of these activities and illustrates the mechanism by which they have become expected functions of the Howard University College of Medicine, its hospital training program, and its community physician support. The last year's activities are described in three categories: Neighborhood Physician Education, Family Practice Resident Training, and Predoctoral Student Teaching. (Author)
