Resident Run Group Visits at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island
Family Medicine residents at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island and the Alpert Medical School at Brown University lead group visits for patients living with diabetes.  The visits, which are part of a new Patient Centered Medical Home-rotation within the residency, take on a team-based approach to delivering high quality care for patients. 

About the Innovators:
David Ashley, MD, has been recently appointed to the Medical Staff as the Medical Director of Family Care. Fluent in Spanish, Dr. Ashley earned his medical degree at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. He completed a family medicine residency at Memorial Hospital. In his role as Medical Director of the Family Care Center, Dr. Ashley works with the residents in the patient centered medical home practice.

Dr. Jeff Borkan is a family physician researcher, educator, clinician, and advocate whose career has bridged two fields (family medicine and medical anthropology), both in the US and abroad (Israel & Tonga). Since medical school, he has been active in family medicine research, as well as being a practicing family physician and resident/student educator. For six years, he was the Coordinator of a national practice based research network and served as the Director of Research in a family medicine department for a decade. Concurrently, he managed the medical services of an isolated desert region in southern Israel, later joining a model teaching practice in the Galilee. He came to Brown after having been the Vice Chair of Behavioral Science at Tel Aviv University, coordinating a major humanistic curriculum reform there. At Brown, Dr. Borkan has spearheaded the growth of the Department of Family Medicine, has been active in Rhode Island health policy, and has been President of national Association of Departments of Family Medicine (2009-10). He has been active in education at the Medical School, leading the first committee charged with designing the Doctoring Program, and currently Chairs the MD Curriculum Committee and the Sub-Committee on Scholarly Concentrations.

About the Clinic:

Memorial Hospital's Family Care Center (FCC) opened in 1975 as a teaching facility and practice base for the Brown Family Medicine Residency Program. The Center provides the highest quality of comprehensive and continuous care to patients and their families throughout the life cycle, with the goal of reducing health disparities for the underserved communities of Pawtucket and Central Falls.  Although the Center has over three decades of experience as a leading primary care provider for well over 10,000 community residents, clinicians continue to improve the practice of medicine. Over the past ten years, the Family Care Center has been moving to achieve a transformation in the care it provides - becoming a highly functioning patient-centered medical home.
