Program Description: 

In order to best consider how to prepare students at the medical school level for practicing with patients who have a history of ACEs, it is important to understand the medical students’ knowledge and attitudes of ACEs on health. The study seeks to understand the baseline ability of medical students to identify ACEs as a potential contributing factor toward a patient’s health status, their knowledge of ACEs, and the attitudes of medical students toward ACEs and trauma informed care. The results of the needs assessment will then inform the next steps in the development of the medical student curriculum for trauma-informed care.
