Prevention & Population Health Modules

These innovative teaching modules include ready to use material aimed at improving clinical and population-based prevention skills for all health professions students.  This curriculum is designed to be easily integrated into existing curricula. Faculty can choose the materials that best fit with their teaching style and needs, from recorded PowerPoint presentations that students can view online, to population health cases which can be used in small group settings. The modules have been designed using the Clinical Prevention and Population Health Curriculum Framework.

All seven modules feature presentations produced by subject matter experts, supplemental materials to facilitate small group learning, and a bibliography of key resources. Instructor guides are available for specific modules.
