Innovating Preventive Medicine Training
Welcome Message

Preventive Medicine 2020 Online brought together leaders from medicine and public health to examine the most pressing issues in healthcare today, and how the Nation’s healthcare system can be transformed around prevention. This virtual meeting offered high-quality medical education programming, networking opportunities, and the recognition of the best in the profession.

The meeting was organized around critical topics including innovations in community health, public health policy, evidence and practice, health systems transformation and lifestyle medicine. Each meeting day was themed around two critical topics, with distinct sessions addressing shared themes in the practice of prevention.


Preventive Medicine 2020 Online focused on big, bold, upstream ideas and the people, places, and programs that are making them a reality today. Transformation is only possible with a clear vision, audacious goals, an innovative mindset, and the will to implement new policy and practice, honestly evaluate change, and engage stakeholders at every level.

Only half of accredited Preventive Medicine residency slots are filled each year. While funding appears to be a major factor there may be other issues as well. This session will explore issues related to low fill-rates and what an ideal PM training program would look like. The session will also present two innovative preventive medicine residencies using the training in place model at the University of Pennsylvania and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These approaches offer cost-effective, high impact alternatives to the traditional approach.
Outcome Objectives
  • Articulate the reasons why only half Preventive Medicine training positions are filled annually.
  • Consider ways to increase funding for Preventive Medicine training programs.
  • Rationalize why training-in-place residencies are cost-effective alternatives to training.
  • Describe the current content and structures of current preventive medicine training programs.
  • Envision the ideal training for Preventive Medicine.
