    • identify existing and emerging curriculum, academic programming, and education initiatives aimed at developing the present and future health workforce that is prepared for health care delivery founded on an understanding of molecular medicine/population health, and practiced as precision health care.
    • identify existing and emerging curriculum, academic programming, and education initiatives aimed at developing the present and future workforce for academia/ industry that is prepared for scientific discovery in the new biomedical of PH.
