Population Health

Healthcare is changing. Healthcare education must accelerate that change. MedU’s ongoing collaborative content expansion now offers topics of importance to population health including High Value Care, Medical Home, Culture in Health, and Addiction and Recovery Education, that will prepare tomorrow’s providers for a re-imagined health care system.

With the help of grants from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM), and the ABIM Foundation, MedU and the American College of Physicians (ACP) are creating an online interactive curriculum that brings High Value Care (HVC) concepts to medical students and healthcare professionals everywhere.  This course is available to any medical professional school. Learn more about the modules and how to access them.


MedU, the Betty Ford Center, a part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, the Treatment Research Institute (TRI) and the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) are collaborating to create an online interactive curriculum that brings the Course on Addiction and Recovery Education (CARE) concepts to medical students everywhere. This course is available by subscription only.


To provide culturally appropriate care is to maximize the common ground between the different perspectives of the patient and the provider, thereby enhancing the therapeutic relationship and improving health outcomes.

These cases and accompanying resources provide opportunities for us to examine our own level of cultural awareness while revealing how cultural biases can profoundly impact our interactions with others. Learn more about Culture in Health Care.



Achieve a better understanding of the complexity of delivering care within the medical home model. Explore the meaning of patient and family-centered partnership. Learn how to help families navigate the healthcare system.

This set of cases and accompanying resources introduce the learner to the responsibilities and rewards of this philosophy of primary care. Learn more about Medical Home.
