Program Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this symposium participants will be able to:

- Analyze current and predicted changes in healthcare reimbursement, access, and policy that will shape emerging models of healthcare delivery.
- Evaluate priorities for preparing the healthcare workforce of the future.
- Integrate population health core principles and competencies into innovative educational programming.
The field of population health seeks to develop approaches to foster health and quality while managing cost and promoting wellness among diverse populations.

In addition, new educational models may be necessary to train the healthcare workforce to effectively implement population health oriented practice.
