  • Health Justice Scholars Program

    Program Start Date: January 10, 2023
    Program End Date: April 18, 2023
    Session Meeting Times: Tuesdays/ Bi-Weekly (approx.) / 7PM-8PM ET

    In late 2019, a discussion erupted in the US over whether the social determinants of health should be taught in medical school. By early 2020, it was clear that the nation’s health disparities were deeply responsible for the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 along racial and class lines. In this course we will take a deep dive into lived experiences of the social determinants of health. We’ll employ both a macro and a micro lens to understand how the social determinants of health play out as health disparities within our healthcare system. Each class will center around the perspective of advocates and activists and what they would hope we would know about their lives as we enter our profession. Through their voice, we’ll develop an understanding of how we can provide better care to our patients and become better advocates for our communities.

    Session Meeting Times: Wednesday/ Bi-Weekly (approx.) / 8PM-9PM ET

    In the ever changing world of medicine, it is important to acknowledge the vast amount of knowledge a physician needs in order to best treat their patients. This type of knowledge comes not only from classroom sciences, but also the physician’s own experiences, which can come not only from patient interactions, but also from reading literature, listening to music, watching visual arts, and periodically reflecting on one’s own self image. 

    The Medical Humanities Scholars Program is a series of interactive lectures and discussions that aim to identify the core human values needed to become an effective and successful physician. Scholars will also gain a better understanding of current events that relate to medicine, and will be introduced to the impact of culture and arts on medicine. We hope you will join us on this exciting journey as we learn more about the many aspects of medicine and broaden our understanding of how to become an effective and well-rounded physician.
