Primary care residents from GNYHA member teaching hospitals and leadership from community-based organizations (CBOs) who participated in GNYHA’s Improving Collaboration Between Primary Care Residency Programs and Community-Based Organizations project will join a panel discussion at an educational symposium on September 20 at the New York Academy of Medicine. The program is the closing event for a multi-year project involving 15 different primary care residency programs that partnered with 15 local CBOs for immersion training opportunities. The panelists will discuss their perspectives on immersion training and the successes/challenges to developing partnerships between residency programs and CBOs. The symposium is open to residency program leadership, population health staff, community affairs representatives, and those working on Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program activities for CBO partners and member hospitals. More information on the program, including registration instructions, can be found here.
