About the Discussion

Climate Change and Medical Education

Climate change has been called the greatest health challenge of our time, but have you considered how the climate crisis affects your patients and your practice of medicine? How can you explore health effects of climate change in your training program or institution? Most importantly, what kind of training would help you translate knowledge about climate change and health into actions that improve patient outcomes and strengthen health systems?

NEJM Resident 360 has invited a panel of experts to discuss the climate crisis and clinical education. We want your thoughts on training students and residents for the challenges that the climate crisis creates for patients, clinical practice, and health care delivery. This discussion follows a virtual symposium hosted by Emory University Woodruff Health Sciences Center and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
