Abstract
Faculty face many challenges in delivering clinical education, including faculty availability, the complexity of the faculty role, and limited clinical placements. Dedicated education units (DEUs) are being explored as alternatives to traditional clinical placement models. The authors describe the successful development of a DEU that resulted in positive student outcomes at reduced cost to both the school and the medical center.
