New Publication from the Council: Teaching Health Centers: A Resource Guide

The purpose of Teaching Health Centers: A Resource Guide is to assist Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) grantees with their efforts to establish and strengthen collaborations with academic institutions, which include medical and allied health professional training schools. A large number of HCH grantees already collaborate with academic entities in providing education to students and residents; however, many are not accredited and/or do not receive additional funding for providing these educational opportunities. This resource guide will be useful for administrators interested in learning the potential benefits of having students and/or residents serve patients and learn at their sites. This guide will provide the resources needed to assist in developing meaningful relationships with academic partners and information on how to seek accreditation as a Teaching Health Center (THC) to provide Graduate Medical Education (GME).
