Abstract Body: We propose a small group session to discuss tactics toward integrating value-driven healthcare concepts and practice into education at the UME and GME levels. The objectives of this session are to (1) briefly examine the definition of “value” and the importance of integrating trainees into value improvement processes, (2) discuss our efforts at the University of Utah at the UME level through curriculum development, and (3) discuss efforts at the GME level through the creation of a value committee. After discussing efforts at our institution, we will then (4) transition to a discussion about experiences at other institutions. We will introduce the concept of “value” as it pertains to healthcare and discuss how it has been defined both nationally and locally here at the University of Utah. We will discuss why it is vital that medical professionals are trained in this domain both in light of the ACGME Next Accreditation System as well as practice in the community at large. We will stress the importance of coordination between departments and the health care institution in developing an integrated educational program. UME-level efforts to build a curriculum in value-driven healthcare will then be discussed. We will describe the approach to education transformation using Kotter’s 8 steps to transform organizations as a conceptual framework. We will identify key stakeholders who have been recruited to contribute to the process of curriculum development and highlight the intentional overlap between the UME and GME efforts. To emphasize the importance of institutional alignment, we will highlight our approach to identifying and incorporating specific terminology and methodology unique to the University of Utah. GME-level efforts to create a GME Value Committee will then be discussed. We will describe our initial efforts at member recruitment, emphasizing the importance of representation from both GME and health system operations and leadership. We will discuss integration of the University of Utah-specific value methodology and value summary into our work. We will discuss the role of the committee and how it has evolved over time, addressing challenges we have encountered and our progress to date. We will then answer questions, invite comments and facilitate discussion. Session attendees will leave with new knowledge and ideas about how to approach the integration of value-driven healthcare into UME and GME education at their own institution.
