The UCSF Double Helix Curriculum is a supplemental practice transformation resident curriculum consisting of lectures, workshops, and readings that aims to teach residents ways to 1) alleviate daily system pressures and 2) think about system structures and system change.
The curriculum was built using the framework of the 10+3 Building Blocks model for PCMH implementation, which our team has organized into four curricular threads: Access, Care Team, Change Management, and Population Management. The materials below are listed in a ranked order of highest priority to lowest priority materials.
We encourage you to download any materials that would be useful additions to your resident teaching curriculum. If you’re unsure how to integrate these practice transformation materials into your existing curriculum, check out our How to Use page for ideas.
