Using a social-ecological framework, Health and Society content considers the interaction of the individual, community, policy and system factors that influence health. During each organ-based module, students learn how the social determinants of health impact the health conditions that they are studying.
Five curricular threads are associated with Health and Society and receive special emphasis throughout the curriculum:
- Lifestyle Medicine
- Healthcare Quality & Patient Safety (HQPS)
- Health Equity & Advocacy (HEA)
- Business of Medicine
