Community Health Program

The Community Health Program aims to educate residents on social justice and healthcare inequalities in the community. The rotation provides connections to local partners to work in a collaborative and mutually beneficial relationship to improve health outcomes in the community. The course is a month long rotation that combines patient care responsibilities in community-based clinics for the under-served and uninsured and advocacy days through a variety of experiences including travel clinics, the food back, and homeless shelters. Through these exposures, residents have the opportunity to learn about disadvantaged populations in the community.
