New training for future leaders
MedAge Today, September 25, 2008
With healthcare expected to make up 25% of the gross domestic product by 2030, there is a need for strong leaders in the areas of health policy and population health. That's why Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia will open the Jefferson School of Health Policy and Population Health in September 2009. David Nash, MD, MBA, FACP, who will lead the new program, says the curriculum will heavily study quality and patient safety.
