Medical School-Clinical Affiliation Study. Final Report.
Keyes, Joseph A.; And Others
The relationship between medical schools and teaching hospitals was examined from the management perspective to identify factors of the interinstitutional relationships in a variety of settings and to uncover important factors in effective relationships. The study focused on six medical schools and the hospitals with which they were affiliated. By means of site visits, interviews, and surveys, six decision areas were explored: (1) the assignment of medical students to clerkships; (2) the assignment of residency positions by specialty; (3) the initiation of new patient care programs; (4) the selection of education coordinator in the affiliated hospital; (5) allocation of resources for sponsored programs; and (6) participation of volunteer faculty in medical school affairs. Data collected are both presented in tabular form and analyzed. Recurring patterns of issues, problems, and approaches to their management are discussed and a series of observations regarding the effectiveness of medical school-teaching hospital relationships are made.
