Population Health Milestones
Across Specialties
A review of milestones for 40 specialties/subspecialties found population health content
within the milestones of all 40.
 Some disciplines having milestones with
population health content in more than a dozen
Population Health Content in Milestones–
Example from Family Medicine
Population Health Content in Milestones–
Example from Plastic Surgery
Generic Milestones
Generic milestones across the four population
health competency domains
 Different specialties will aspire to different
 Process
◦ Begun at conference of Society of Teachers of Family
◦ Currently revising
◦ Review at I3 Collaborative Face-to-Face meeting this
◦ Volunteers needed to review, provide feedback.

 TS-3 Communicate with team members to clarify each person’s
responsibility in executing a health intervention
3. Working with
 PH-3 Use community assets and resources to improve health at the
individual and population levels
 CE-5 Participate in population health improvement strategies by using
community-based participatory methodologies
4. How to Identify,
Assess and Use
 CT-1 Use qualitative and quantitative data to assess the health status
of a population
 CT-4 Assess process and outcomes of interventions
5. Change Management
 TS-4 Support and manage change in complex environments
 PH-7 Understand and support he principles of accountability and
accreditation at the community or public health agency level
6. Working as a Team
to Apply QI
 CE-2 Analyze the role of community engagement as a strategy for
identifying community health concerns, improving health, and
reducing health disparities
 TS-2 Lead interprofessional teams in health improvement
 CT-3 Apply QI principles in community or public health

GME Population Health Innovation Modules
Two grants from the Duke GME Innovation Fund
Goal is to cover all of the competencies in the Population Health Competency Map
Developed in Qualtrics – allows for data collection
Short—15-20 minutes
◦ Start with a situation—How would you engage community partners?
◦ A short lesson
◦ Revisiting the initial situation
◦ Take away
Available at iCollaborative:
Imagine you are working in a pediatric practice. An immigrant couple
brings in their 18 month-old daughter. You notice that the child is
wearing the bracelet above. You are concerned that it may be a
choking hazard for the little girl. Please write a brief paragraph
explaining what you may say to, or ask, the parents about this issue.

 Here are two possible answers. Which one is more likely to
be effective? Please explain your answer in a few sentences.
 Answer 1:
◦ I’m concerned that that bracelet might be a choking hazard. It
could come loose as she chews on it and cause her to choke. You
should remove it. She should not wear a bracelet or other
jewelry until she is at least 3 years old.
Answer 2:
◦ You: That’s a beautiful bracelet. Can you tell me more about it?
Does it mean something special?
◦ Mother: It is an amulet to protect her from the evil eye.
◦ You: I understand. Does she ever play with it or chew on it?
◦ Mother: Sometimes. Not often.
◦ You: That’s good. I’m a little worried that, because she is so little,
she might chew on the bracelet and that if it came loose she
could choke. To keep her safe, could you check the bracelet every
day to make sure the catch and charm are secure, and encourage
her to keep it out of her mouth?
The exercise continues with a short
reading about cultural responsiveness and
two additional scenarios in which learners
are asked to write culturally responsive
 The module concludes with a brief reading
about the role of Motivational Interviewing
in culturally responsive health care, and
additional resources for the learner to
