Education Resources

A variety of medical resources have been compiled by the USU Learning Resource Center to benefit the uniformed pediatric care provider.

Patients as Advisors: Enhancing Medical Education Curricula is a guidethat describes the theoretical and practical approach to using parents of children with special needs and patients with chronic illness as advisors to medical school curricula, as assistants in developing teaching activities, and as co-teachers with faculty. The guide includes examples of tested teaching activities complete with lesson plans and handouts.
