Proposal

Immunization Perceptions & Education: From the Patient to the Resident and Back Again

The goal of this program is to develop an innovative, scientifically informed educational model, based on observations of internal medicine residents’ and patients’ perceptions of immunizations and preferred cognitive styles, that teaches internal medicine residents how to effectively motivate and educate patients to overcome barriers to immunization.
