Abstract

Osteopathic teaching hospitals are frequently criticized by house staff officers for not being sufficiently didactic or academically oriented. A model for providing academic training for students, interns, and residents as well as continuing medical education for attending staff physicians is described. This model may be administered by a department of medical education at community hospitals. Tax-deductible financial contributions from medical staff physicians and grants from pharmaceutical companies will be adequate to support this model. Benefits include enhancement of teaching rounds, increased medical staff support, improved compliance with CME requirements, and development of a useful recruitment tool.
