RT-01 How to Create a Jail Health Elective for Resident Physicians*

Family physicians are ideally suited to provide health care in correctional settings; however, correctional medicine residency training is uncommon. In an elective jail health rotation at King County Correctional Facility, residents learn about health care in an urban county jail and gain insights into the patient experience. They see how jail health care is a link in the care continuum for medically underserved people. The roundtable will provide a framework for how this program could be replicated elsewhere and how correctional health experiential education may improve the quality of health care people receive post release.
