BIDMC is a student-faculty chronic disease management clinic which partners with primary care providers and specialists to serve patients with hypertension, diabetes mellitus and obstructive lung disease.
Our specific aims include:
(1) Delivering comprehensive chronic disease management care and identifying measurable metrics to quantify our progress toward improved health outcomes
(2) To increase students' knowledge base and clinical skills around the management of chronic diseases
(3) To broaden students' understanding of the healthcare system by engaging them in service-oriented activities, health care management, quality improvement, research, and patient education.
Our clinic is located in the Shapiro Center at BIDMC, Longwood Medical Area. With our pilot launching in January 2012, volunteers will have the opportunity to have hands-on experience with the development and implementation stages of the clinic.
