Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This article reviews several national programs in musculoskeletal education initiated by the Department of Veterans Affairs over the past decade. These programs have become sustained interprofessional opportunities for learners across disciplines and along the continuum of health professions education (HPE) and training pathways. This article also describes opportunities for leaders in rheumatology and other HPE programs to join these efforts and to collaborate in the scholarship that will be necessary in constructing educational programs fit for the purpose of ensuring a well-trained, competent workforce of health care providers.
