Curriculum Used by MCCG Family Residency Medicine Program Wins Award

Program Uses Online, Multimedia Teaching MACON, GA (June 15, 2011) – The Family Medicine Residency Program at The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) is one of 12 programs in the country using the Integrative Medicine in Residency Online Curriculum, which recently won the “Innovative Program Award” from the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM). The Integrative Medicine in Residency Online Curriculum is designed to be woven into the conventional training of primary care residents. The 200-hour online competency-based core curriculum fits into the usual residency training without the need of adding an extra year of training such as in the Integrative Medicine Fellowship in Residency. The curriculum is modular and customizable by residency programs and offers a number of multimedia tools for seamless education and point-of-care use. For the first time, integrative medicine is a required component of graduate medical education at eight residency sites around the nation. The Family Medicine Residency Program at MCCG is one of four “early adopters,” and will provide the complete program to interested residents next year. The “Innovative Program Award” was presented at the STFM’s Annual Spring Conference. It is considered one of the society’s most prestigious awards.
