The Impact

Case Study - governance

A community hospital set out to establish GME programs to support regional primary care needs. Mayo Clinic Academic Solutions was asked to assess the current working and learning environment and develop a GME strategy.

Challenge: The institution's current academic culture was not reflective of teaching and learning. Senior leaders were strong advocates for expanding the academic footprint on their campus, however, there was significant lack of internal consensus surrounding GME viability and reluctant staff to serve as program faculty.

Solution: Mayo Clinic Academic Solutions conducted a current state assessment and assisted the institution in developing aims, strategies, and a sequenced action plan for GME expansion. The GME strategic plan included a cultural change management plan to help socialize graduate medical education and secure medical staff buy-in.

Impact: In collaboration with Mayo Clinic Academic Solutions, the community hospital created a strong vision for GME growth and successfully proved their ability to support the financial, educational, administrative, clinical, and human resources needed to support post-graduate training. They approved the start of an Internal Medicine Residency and Cardiology Fellowship, and secured medical staff eager to serve as program directors and teaching faculty. Mayo Clinic Academic Solutions is now providing consulting for Institutional and Programmatic Accreditation.
