Please REGISTER to attend:

Green is currently associate professor of Medicine and associate director of the Primary Care Residency Program at Yale University School of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and Master of Science in Health Policy and Management from Harvard School of Public Health. His post graduate training included an internship, residency, and fellowship in general medicine at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston and the Harvard Medical School.

Green’s research interests include medical education curriculum development, evidence-based practice and lifelong self-directed learning. In particular, he has investigated strategies to integrate evidence-based medicine into internal medicine training through trials of educational interventions; national surveys of residency programs; systematic reviews of curricula and evaluation instruments; a prospective study of the epidemiology of residents’ medical information needs; and a qualitative analysis of barriers to answering clinical questions.

As a Kimball Scholar at the American Board of Internal Medicine, Green has combined evidence-based practice “technology” and insights from physician learning studies in an internet-based “Point of Care Clinical Question” module. This module offers a practice-based alternative to the current multiple choice Self Evaluation Modules in the Maintenance of Certification process.

Green serves on the SGIM evidence-based medicine task force, the SGIM reforming internal medicine residency training task force, the ACGME-ABIM Milestones task force and the editorial board of the Journal of General Internal Medicine. He has received the regional and national awards for scholarship in medical education from the Society of General Internal Medicine and the education award from the Yale department of internal medicine.

Green practices general internal medicine and sees patients referred for HIV-related dyslipidemia and lipodystrophy.

Boxed lunches will be provided for participants who register by Friday, Nov. 12
