PCPC & YOBM Med-Peds and Family Medicine Suggested 2019-2020 Topic List

Many providers and training programs use the Yale Office Based Medicine Curriculum (YOBM) in conjunction with the Yale Primary Care Pediatrics Curriculum (PCPC). We have created the following suggested topic order for those who utilize both curricula. Certain chapters have considerable overlap for adults and children. When two separate chapters exist for these topics, we suggest that moderators review content from both chapters in preparation for conference and modify the discussion, pulling parts from both the PCPC and YOBM chapters as appropriate for the specific needs of their learners. We have identified some areas of overlap. 

Many of the topics that are not listed on this 52-week cycle will appear on the suggested topic order for next year. The omission of a particular chapter in no way suggests that mastery of that topic is less important than the topics that appear on the 52-week list. We encourage programs to modify the list of topics to be covered to best meet local needs.
