Who we are: Research suggests that multiple complex social determinants play a large role in health. Health professional education, therefore, should prepare learners to both understand and meet the needs of our evolving communities and populations. Our curricular interventions have the following objectives:
  1. To teach learners the complexity and impact of community and other social determinants of health and
  2. To demonstrate ways to connect community/ public service and advocacy with their clinical and academic work through a combinations of didactic, experiential, and direct service activities.
We seek to arm interdisciplinary learners from across the university insight into the context within which they will practice medicine or broadly address health. Course offerings are designed to support participants in scholarly activity that both achieves high standards of academic rigor and benefits a specific community, organization, or public interest. Importantly, courses will equip the future health care team members to practice medicine in a socially complex world, better able to understand and cooperatively address the problems facing many of their patients and communities.

Target Audience: The UHI engages and teaches learners from across healthcare, academia, and communities around concepts critical to our mission of advancing equity in health and well-being.
