What innovative strategies have you observed, created, or dreamt of that may address burnout, isolation, or lack of support in medical education?

As one example: Cambridge Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate, hosts an integrated longitudinal third year curriculum. By giving students the opportunity to work with patients and preceptors longitudinally, rather than in traditional clerkship blocks, students report having better connections with patients, receiving more attending level feedback, and being better able to cope with future challenges. (I was in a traditional third year experience, so have not experienced this first hand.) More info: .fm.usp.br/cedem/did/preceptor...
