Duke University School of Medicine and School of Nursing faculty and staff gathered last month to begin planning a five-year project aimed at primary care training and enhancement.
The project, led by the Duke Physician Assistant Program, is a collaboration between the departments of Community and Family Medicine, Pediatrics and Medicine, and the Duke University School of Nursing and Duke University School of Medicine MD program.
"Transforming Health Care through Enhanced Clinical Team Training (THCECTT)" is funded by a $2.3 million Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant. The principal goal of THCECTT is to enhance interprofessional engagement and learning across Duke Health professions learners, faculty and practitioners and in doing so improve population health at the practice, health system and community level in the state of North Carolina.
