Abstract Body: Learning objectives: Become familiar with medical student insights into benefits of and challenges to patient-centered care in primary care settings. Discuss time management, a salient patient-centered challenefor medical students. Explore ways to teach medical students about patient-centered time management through a hands-on curriculum. Generate ideas about additional ways to teach medical students about patient-centered care in busy outpatient settings. Methods: In 2013-2014, we conducted a study analyzing 216 medical students’ patient logs from the Stanford School of Medicine family medicine core clerkship to assess their perceptions of patient-centered care. We found that students were able to identify many of the benefits of patient-centered care, such as increased patient engagement in the care plan and improved outcomes. However, students also highlighted several challenges that they faced in being patient-centered. These challenges ranged from communication barriers between themselves and the patient, to limited time for the clinical encounter, to areas where physician and patient perceptions of illness differed. We have begun to design an innovative, hands-on curriculum that seeks to teach medical students new skills around patient-centeredness, to address some of these perceived challenges. Our evolving curriculum focuses on patient-centered time management. We designed a flipped classroom curriculum about patient-centered time management that includes two short video clips, followed by thirty minutes of didactics during the required family medicine core clerkship at Stanford. During our presentation, we will show audience members portions of the videos and use our curriculum as a starting point to generate discussion around how to teach medical students the tenets of patient-centered care, with a focus on time efficiency and efficacy. Intended outcomes: There is little in the literature about how to effectively teach students how to be patient-centered in a primary care setting. We hope to generate rich discussion about how to teach medical students the tenets of patient-centeredness, specifically in relation to time management. After we introduce the curriculum we have designed to teach students about patient-centered time management, we hope to get feedback from audience members about ways to improve/alter our curriculum to best address barriers to patient-centeredness in the primary care setting. Target audience: Our target audience includes primary care faculty, medical and other health professions students, and staff involved in designing and evaluating medical school education curriculum. We are especially hoping to target faculty and staff that help to design primary care exposure for preclerkship and clerkship students.
