Education-Centered Medical Home

NMPG Group

The Education-Centered Medical Home (ECMH) provides students with early and comprehensive educational exposure to team-based medicine in an authentic outpatient environment. Students work with the same preceptor and peers over four years to help care for patients and measure their progress. This learning model helps students build a professional identity as early as the first year of medical school, offers 360-degree assessment opportunities and allows for patients, peers and preceptors to give feedback on the student's progress in our eight core competencies.
