Abstract

Recommendations on future directions, funding, and organizational and curricular issues have emerged from the complexity of the Interdisciplinary Generalist Curriculum (IGC) Project. For example, future demonstration projects aimed at innovations in medical education that are funded through the contracting mechanism are recommended, and funding intended to serve as institutional leverage for demonstrating desired curricular innovations in medical education is encouraged. Funding provided to entities that can maximize influence within the institutions is recommended. Also, the period of time over which funds are provided needs to take into consideration the breadth of the impact of the funded program on the larger curriculum and the length of time needed to measure desired outcomes. Organizational findings are that multi-site projects with administrative oversight bodies should be governed by representatives of concerned disciplines who have stakes in the demonstration of the innovations in medical education, and roles of the executive and advisory committees involved in the effort need to be made explicit at the onset and revisited over time. Similarly, the role of the funder needs to be explicit. Curricular recommendations are that medical schools are encouraged to develop longitudinal generalist preceptorship experiences early in medical education for all students, regardless of their eventual career choices. Schools should anticipate that curricular innovations in the preclinical years may require modifications of the educational process in the clinical years.
