Tufts Health Care Institute (THCI) organized and ran the Mini-Rotation on the Health Care System annually for 17 years. We are now pleased to offer materials from the Mini-Rotation to faculty members and administrators engaged in undergraduate and/or graduate medical education. Many of the sessions in our program address the ACGME competencies of Systems-based Practice and Practice-based Learning and Improvement.
THCI’s mini-rotation agenda and learning objectives reflect our course’s structure. Since the structure was modular, you may choose to follow the THCI model of a concentrated program, held on four to five consecutive days, featuring several topics and presenters each day, or choose one of the alternative course structures we describe below. However you choose to structure your educational program, you may use approaches and materials from any of THCI’s course topics and sessions that you wish to teach.
In this section we present information on organizing and implementing the Mini-Rotation; alternative approaches; working with faculty and learners; and tips for a successful learning experience.
