Movement to accelerate value education nationally

HVPAA and Costs of Care are teaming up to ignite high-value care medical education across the United States in a new campaign entitled MAVEN: Movement to Accelerate Value Education Nationally.

Our mission is for every medically related graduate school and graduate level training program (nursing, advanced practice provider, physician) to include principles of high-value practice in their curricula.

Does your medical school or residency training program include health care value in the curriculum?

If the answer is “no”, see FREE resources below the map.

If the answer is “yes”, put your program on the map by contacting us here. Please mention “MAVEN” in your message. 

Medical educators in need of high-value care curricula can easily change the answer from “no” to “yes” using this 4 year curriculum for medical school or graduate medical education (residency, fellowship) training programs. All resources are free.
