Healthcare for the Homeless Curriculum

Date of Review: October, 2018

This resource, from MedEdPORTAL, contains a Healthcare for the Homeless curriculum to be given to medical students in their ambulatory clerkship years and has been adapted for use with graduate medical trainees in Family Medicine and Internal Medicine. It is intended to be used in clinical settings and contains two very detailed PowerPoint guide sets to be used in didactic sessions as well as a homeless medicine guide and resources handouts for students and clinical preceptors. Finally, the authors have provided a list of how to adapt each of these for local use (it is very context specific of course) by identifying which slides are city specific and outlines the detailed statistics that need to be revised to adapt it to local settings. The author provides learner assessment and program evaluation tools using pre- and post-tests which are included in this submission. Ashti Doobay-Persaud, MD, NCEAS
