The 2015 Beyond Flexner Conference examined the progress of social mission innovations and reforms, as well as the moral, financial, and pedagogic aspects of social purpose and social accountability in health professions education.

Attendees deliberated about best practices, new schools’ programs, curricular innovations, augmented pipeline programs, teaching health centers, “upstream” medicine, and the public health medicine interface.

Conference participants not only deliberated issues of social mission but had the opportunity to take part in one of 16 site visits in and around Albuquerque. These visits were to programs where health professions students and faculty engaged in community based health delivery, agriculture, environmental improvement, and information exchange projects, modeling the impact a medical school could have on social determinants of health.
