APAHC Task Force on Behavioral and Social Science Foundations for Physicians

Academic medicine, in its education of medical students and residents, values the scientific and clinical contributions of psychology/behavioral science, and is recognizing that this needs to be a key component to medical education.  Behavioral and social sciences are part of the core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice.  The AAMC, in its recent report “Behavioral and Social Science Foundations for Future Physicians”  emphasizes that “a complete medical education must include, alongside physical and biological science, the perspectives and findings that flow from the behavioral and social sciences”.  Because of the increasing emphasis on this area in medical education, our Task Force has compiled a list of resources that will hopefully be helpful to our APAHC members who are doing this work.  The list is not comprehensive, so please contact me at cbrosig@chw.org if you have additional material to add to our list. 

These resources are available to APAHC members only on the members only site. Log in using the "Members Login" page found on the menu to the left.
