Summary In order for educational innovation in nursing and medicine to occur in a thoughtful and robust way, creative faculty members devoted to educational reform must be nurtured, and their ideas need to have incubators for development. The pressures on medical school and nursing school faculty to carry out clinical and research responsibilities have made it difficult for many who would like to pursue careers as educators and to become leaders in educational reform. This program will allow faculty to create innovative healthcare education reform by supporting: 1. Interprofessional education to promote team work and interprofessional collaboration. 2. New models of clinical education that emphasize longitudinal, integrated experiences with patients, families, and faculty. 3. New content in health professional curricula such as quality improvement, patient safety, systems analysis, health economics, and the social determinants of health. 4. Education of health professionals to care for underserved populations, including addressing the need for more primary care providers. 5. Programs to diversify the health professional workforce so that it more closely matches across many dimensions the populations to be served. 6. Domestic programs that promote an understanding of global health.
