A recent report commissioned by the IOM Roundtable on Population Health Improvement offers a vision and specific recommendations for future training in interdisciplinary population health science. The report reflects the findings of a distinguished group of population health leaders who met June 1-2, 2015 meeting at the Institute of Medicine in Washington DC. Training in Interdisciplinary Health Science: Current Successes and Future Needs addresses core competencies, training practices, and institutional supports needed for training programs; discusses training opportunities and challenges from undergraduate to the post-doctoral level and beyond, and recommends a model for programs at the doctoral and post-doctoral levels.
