Health Systems Science Academy scholars recognized at EdVenture 2019

Penn State College of Medicine’s Health Systems Science Academy was launched in September 2016 and is designed to develop teachers and role models in Health Systems Science within each department.

Health Systems Science includes core concepts related to health care delivery, clinical informatics, public and population health value-based care, health system improvement and health care policy. Jed Gonzalo, MD, MSc, Associate Dean for Health Systems Education, describes the academy as “a key component of the educational portfolio related to health systems science education here at Penn State Health and provides a great opportunity to learn and work with faculty, staff and trainees as well as to learn from a diverse array of systems leaders and educators.”

As of May 2019, the academy has graduated 70 health systems science scholars. “One of the major benefits of the HSSA course is that it allows our scholars to gain a broader and deeper understanding of the Penn State health care system, along with the opportunity to network and collaborate with other providers and leadership at all levels across the entire system,” said Heidi Wolf, MD, Health Systems Science Academy co-director.

This year’s scholars presented their projects (in poster format) as part of the EdVenture celebration held April 18, 2019. Read more about EdVenture 2019.
