Annals of Internal Medicine
Supplement From the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program
18 November 2014, Vol. 161. No. 10_Supplement

From the Editor's Introduction:

Since its inception in 1972, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Clinical Scholars Program has contributed enormously to our understanding of quality and high-value health care. This electronic supplement highlights work by current and former Clinical Scholars that describes low-cost system-level or community-partnered health care innovations that hold promise to improve quality of care. This is a particularly appropriate time to celebrate the work of the program because the RWJF will be concluding it in 2017 as the foundation's priorities shift to supporting the development of leaders for the transformation to a Culture of Health.

The RWJF Human Capital Blog includes a great piece on this special issue:
