Presenters: Terry Bahn (Director of Community Outreach, College of Medicine, The Ohio State University), Gerard "Jerry" D. Klein (President and Chief Executive Officer, Bucyrus Community Hospital). Abstract: This presentation is a case study of a medical education partnership between an academic medical center and a rural community hospital. Co-presenters are the president of the hospital and the medical school’s director of community outreach. We will discuss how this partnership achieves community, educational, and organizational goals. The presentation will begin with a brief, informal needs assessment to ensure that the audience will leave with an understanding of how our experience might transfer to other current or planned university-community scenarios.
