Curriculum for Subspecialty Fellows
This curriculum includes new cases and concepts focused at the level of a second-year subspecialty fellow.
The High Value Care Curriculum (HVC) has been jointly developed by ACP and the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM) to help train subspecialty fellows to provide high value patient care and to engage them in identifying system-level opportunities to reduce waste and improve patient outcomes. This curriculum has been adapted from the resident's curriculum by fellowship educators to include new cases and concepts focused at the level of a second-year subspecialty fellow.
