Siloam Family Health Center is a faith-based, volunteer-supported primary and specialty care clinic that provides high-quality, affordable health care to the uninsured.  Its mission is to share the love of Christ by serving those in need through health care.  The grant requested will be used to fund the salaries of faculty and administrative staff dedicated to implementing the Siloam Institute of Faith, Health and Culture.  The core activity of the Institute provides students and residents with intentional practicum-based training opportunities and resources in the overlapping domains of poverty medicine, cross-cultural health care, and whole-person care.  Over a two-year period of various rotations, 35 of 44 (80%) Institute trainees will demonstrate improved knowledge of issues relevant to care for marginalized populations, by showing an average 20% increase (from the initial pre-rotation tests) in each of the three curricular domains: Poverty Medicine, Cross-Cultural Health Care, and Whole-Person Care. Over a two-year period of various rotations, 35 of 44 (80%) Institute trainees will have improved skills in compassionate care by demonstrating observable behavior that indicates an average 3-point increase on a 9-point Likert scale as administered by a preceptor in each of the three curricular domains: Poverty Medicine, Cross-Cultural Health Care, and Whole-Person Care.
