MCW, Kern Institute featured in "Modern Healthcare"
The story highlights the Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Institute for the Transformation of Medical Education, a network of MCW and six other medical schools around the nation, for its innovative commitment to developing students and physicians who practice the Triple Aim of Medical Education: character, competence and caring.
With MCW leading this initiative, the article quotes Dr. Raymond, saying, “The lack of focus on these qualities during medical school ultimately hinders efforts in the healthcare industry overall to provide care that is more patient-centered. ‘We need to make (medical school) feel more real and more directly related to the patient.’”
