Program Description: 

The San Jacinto Methodist Family Medicine Residency Program offers a four-week block rotation for second year Family Medicine residents to learn about leadership and the patient-centered medical home (PCMH).  Residents complete online modules, readings, shadowing experiences, an American Board of Family Medicine Part IV module through METRIC, and a quality improvement project using a Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle. 

Goals of this rotation include:

  1. articulate an evidence-based definition of PCMH
  2. describe four evidence-based components of a PCMH-based healthcare system capable of providing high value services
  3. learn to distinguish the qualities of successful PCMH practices by peer-reviewed literature and becoming familiar with NCQA guidelines for PCMH recognition
  4. demonstrate proficiency in the six core competencies while providing patient care, leading care teams, and participating in practice improvement activities
