Affiliation Agreements Medical School

The home establishment of a hospitality medical student may require an affiliation agreement with Baylor. Baylor currently has active affiliation agreements with the following host institutions: A medical education program must have entered into affiliation agreements with its clinical subsidiaries that have been concluded and signed defining at least the responsibilities of each party under the medical student education program. An important part of the third and fourth year of medical school is the opportunity to learn in a clinical environment. The AAMC Uniforme Clinical Training Agreement is designed to: written agreements with clinical partners that are regularly used for the necessary clinical experience. Agreements may also be warranted with other clinical institutions that play an important role in the clinical studies program. Universities and health systems should also take steps to ensure that there are appropriate common management structures to guide day-to-day functioning between institutions. One strategy is to develop leadership positions with matrix relationships with the health system and with the university or health centre, for example. B senior physicians, who hold two positions at the Health Sciences Centre (for example. B Vice-Chancellor for Clinical Affairs) and the Health System (e.g. B Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs). Similarly, in the context of functionally integrated AZUHCs, it is customary for scientific department heads to act simultaneously as heads of their respective departments in the hospital or health system. The aim of these dual matrix roles and relationships is to create an environment in which leaders must reconcile the interests of the two organizations with the often competing demands of their collective academic and clinical enterprises. Our goal is to avoid the unnecessary time and resources that are currently spent on negotiating (and renegotiating) agreements if a coherent and predictable approach is sufficient.

The AAMC Uniforme Clinical Training Agreement is a simple and consistent agreement located on the AAMC site. Seven critical features are listed below and should be included in all accession agreements, either as amendments to existing agreements or as part of new final agreements. These points, regardless of organizational structure, will be relevant to all CMAs, but are best applicable in cases where the university and the health system are not integrated into the company as a whole. The structure of the practice of faculty groups (FGP) and other medical organizations employed or affiliated (as explained in more detail in this article) also has an influence. In addition to the importance of the Committee`s advisory role, many organizations are taking steps to create meaningful opportunities to participate in their respective governance structures, usually by appointing seats on the boards of directors and/or management committees of the other (for example. B of a university`s public health committee). The number of seats is, to a large extent, determined by the existing structure of the board of directors or committee, including legal or regulatory considerations (for example. B in cases where the board members are political members), but the overall degree of influence should be the same for both parties and correspond to the extent of membership and the character of the overall partnership. In all cases, the intent of this cross-representation is to ensure that the impact on the AMC partnership is taken into account in decision-making at the highest levels of both organizations.
