NYU School of Medicine
Health Care by the Numbers
This project is funded by the AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Program.

The NYU 'Healthcare by the Numbers: Populations, Systems, and Clinically Integrated Data' curriculum leverages an integrated partnership of our School of Medicine and NYU Langone Medical Center to transform our medical school curriculum. By creating a three-year long program of education for our students that is based on the real clinical data of our practices, we are accelerating changes in what we are teaching so as to be aligned with the future demands of practice.

“Our hope is that this robust curriculum will prepare our graduates to meet the future needs of the ever evolving healthcare delivery system by giving them the tools and skills necessary to care for not just an individual patient, but for an entire population of patients,”

Marc Triola, MD, associate dean for educational informatics, principal investigator
