Designing a disease management program is a complex process that can involve a variety of clinical, professional, and research skills. This paper describes a collaborative effort by Mayo Health Plan Arizona and the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale Family Medicine Residency program. Using an evidence-based approach to hypertension management, resident physicians acquired skills in three of the six core competency areas required for future physicians as defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, Chicago. Resident involvement and feedback for this pilot curriculum were positive and the residents were confident in the skills they developed.
