NYUCN & NYU School of Medicine to Participate in Carnegie Foundation Forum

March 31, 2010

The NYU College of Nursing and the School of Medicine have been selected to participate in the Educating Nurses and Physicians: Toward New Horizons conference Hosted by the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation and The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

From June 16-18, 2010, the NYU College of Nursing and the School of Medicine will be one of the six nursing-medicine school pairs selected from 32 applicants nationwide to participate in the Educating Nurses and Physicians: Toward New Horizons. The conference which is hosted by the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching  is designed to explore implementation of reforms in nursing and medical education called for by the Carnegie Foundation’s forthcoming studies, Educating Nurses: A Call for Radical Transformation and Educating Physicians: A Call for Reform.

In order to be selected for participation at this conference, both the nursing school and the medical school had to address three of the Carnegie educational reform recommendations of integration, system improvement and professionalism within their schools. Strategies to strengthen educational collaboration related to the conference themes will also be developed.  Following the conference, participants will work collaboratively to disseminate conference plans and outcomes nationally.

“NYU is very proud of the programs, workshops and courses that we currently have that align with the goals of the conference, the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching,” says Dean Terry Fulmer of the NYU College of Nursing. “We feel honored to be participating in the conference and look forward to the improvements it will generate to our current curriculum.”

The Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation and The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching believe that if students in the health professions learn jointly in clinical settings, as graduates they will improve patient outcomes by working more collaboratively, communicating better with each other, and leading health care reform that assures  high quality and safe patient care.
