Patient Centered Medical Education Program (PCME)

PCME is a unique education program for pediatric and family medicine physicians and residents at local and regional hospitals that provides an opportunity to hear directly from youth and young adults with TS and their families. The goal of PCME is to foster an understanding of the perspectives, stresses, and needs of families living with TS and associated disorders such as OCD, ADHD, and anxiety. The presentations include dialogue about personal experience including initial diagnosis and quality-of-life encounters with physicians and the health-care system.
