Medical Partnership

DSAMT supports medical professionals and students with training and resources to ensure families receive accurate, up-to- date information and to facilitate a positive care experience for families.  Importantly, we connect these professionals to parents of children and adults with Down syndrome, so that they better understand the parents' perspective and can better serve their patients.

We also want to encourage physicians to take advantage of the resources located in the IDD Toolkit for Primary Care Providers  and to participate in the IDD Toolkit Telehealth Project offered for Tennessee physicians, advanced practice nurses, and physician assistants; AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM or AAFP Prescribed credits for each one-hour session you complete. Project ends February 2017. Email janet.shouse@vanderbilt.edu for information.
