Including Health Literacy in the Skills Curriculum and Assessment for Third Year Osteopathic Medicine Students

This grant application is for funding to hire a clinical skills expert to develop a health literacy/patient communication module to be incorporated into a mandatory clinical skills review course for third-year students. Students will be brought back to campus from their rotation sites for this course. The Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine is a fully accredited four-year school of medicine leading to the granting of the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree (DO). This is a continuation of funding received last year to integrate health literacy into the Osteopathic Medicine curriculum.
