    Ms. Jordan’s interest in preventative healthcare was ignited during a pre-med student internship in Ahmedabad, India. Disturbed by the alarming number of health challenges faced by individuals of underserved communities, she is committed to being the change agent that improves the inequitable deliverance of healthcare in today’s society.  It was not until Ms. Jordan’s completion of SHPEP, that it became quite clear how she planned to fulfill her intentions in healthcare.

    Ms. Jordan transitioned her career plans from medicine to dentistry after her intense six-week experience in SHPEP. After leaving Louisville, she immediately solidified her decision by continuing to shadow in different dental specialties. She currently shadows and volunteers at a Dental office in New York. Upon graduation, Ms. Jordan plans to attend Dental school and provide dental care in underserved communities.

Our pursuit of this goal may be met by establishing a culture of health through the alignment of a diverse, inclusive, inter-professional team that informs and improves high quality patient, family, and community centered care. As such, I believe the educational pipeline through SHPEP and engagement of our alumni is critical to achieving this goal. Serving on the Alumni Board propagates my passion of reducing health and health care disparities, ensuring that the doors to medicine are wide open to those marginalized and those working towards reducing health and social inequities in health care delivery systems.”

    When the Milestones were formally implemented in seven specialties in 2013, the ACGME made a commitment at that time to study the validity and impact of the Milestones on GME training. 

    The first five years of Milestone use by residencies and fellowships has catalyzed a number of important quantitative and qualitative studies on the validity and utility of Milestones. Multiple studies have involved either national or multi-institutional Milestone data to study key components of validity. We have learned lessons about what works and what doesn’t, success factors and approaches for residents, helpful and unhelpful characteristics of Milestone design and content, and early lessons about effective clinical competency committees.
