FMMD 221 - DIABETES INTERPROFESSIONAL MEDICAL EDUCATION (DIME) PROGRAM (PASS/FAIL)

[25 Hours]
The Diabetes Interprofessional Medicine Program (DIME) is a program that integrates clinical service with education guided by the Exemplary Care and Learning site Model (Headrick LA, 2011), introducing principles of a patient centered medical home (PCMH) into an ambulatory site using a team of learners from nursing, medicine, pharmacy, and social work. The team provides care management for a high risk population of uncontrolled diabetic patients. Learners experience elements of the PCMH through participation, learn teamwork skills, and contribute positively to improving patient care outcomes. This course is only open to those students who have completed FMMD 220.
