“Global Community Care During a Pandemic: Lesson Learned After One Year of Telehealth in Guatemala”
The Christ Hospital/University of Cincinnati Family Medicine Residency has had a partnership in Guatemala, sending interprofessional teams of healthcare providers to provide in-person care four times per year since 2016. The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed the way we deliver care. Using a telehealth model, we created virtual trips for residents and students to attend, maintaining continuity with our patients and continuing to teach residents core principles in global health and care of vulnerable populations.
MFPCC is a 12-month training program designed to identify and promote development of physician leadership skills and increase knowledge of the foundations of high performing primary care and strategies to implement clinic transformational activities. Champion Fellows will be encouraged over the course of the fellowship year to serve as educational liaisons to their colleagues and the future healthcare workforce by drawing on expertise obtained through the fellowship. Fellows will translate learning into action in the planning/development of a health care transformation project to address a critical need at their community-based primary care sites. The fellowship will begin September 1, 2021 and run through August 31, 2022. Applications are being accepted through July 15, 2021 with review and acceptances communicated at the beginning of August 2021.
