Advancing the Partnership Paradigm at a Traditional Medical School

The CCPH Featured member is Lewis Lefkowitz, Professor, Emeritus at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee. Often ahead of his time, in this interview Lewis humbly shares his extensive experience successfully influencing course offerings at a traditional medical school in order to give students an opportunity to learn and to research in the community. In recognition of his efforts in March 2001, Nashville's Campus of Human Development respite program dedicated the Vine Hill Community Clinic in his honor. In October 2002, the Vanderbilt Center for Health Services announced the creation of The Lewis B. Lefkowitz Internship to recognize and continue his commitment of extending medical education beyond the classroom and hospital, into the community.
