This introductory, on-demand virtual learning course provides an overview of medical school funding and is perfect for medical professionals who don’t have a background in finance. This 90-minute course will help learners better understand medical schools’ three missions, how they interrelate, and the costs and funding sources for each. From the funding streams associated with the different missions to the differences in funding depending on organizational structure, and the current challenges medical schools and academic health systems face, learners will come away with a solid grasp on how changes in funding streams affect the work of faculty and staff and how their own work contributes to the financial health of their institution. This interactive series, which contains six modules, is designed to allow learners to proceed at their own pace and think about how these financial topics apply to academic medicine and to their own institution.
- Pricing: Free.
- Author: Subject matter experts at the AAMC in consultation with financial experts at multiple medical institutions.
