Training new physicians to transform care in underserved communities
One of the most common motivations of medical students is a desire to serve others, yet too few physicians practice in underserved communities in the U.S., and health inequity is a persistent problem. Through the Sam W. Ho Health Justice Scholars Program, the School of Medicine is training physicians with the vision and skills to transform health care in partnership with the communities they serve.
Ho Health Justice Scholars complete a rigorous curriculum of clinical training, mentorship, and coursework including cultural competency, interprofessional collaboration, and patient empowerment. Each participant completes a longitudinal project on community-based research, intervention, or advocacy.
Through a generous gift from alumnus Samuel Ho, M76, the program will prepare young physicians to improve care in underserved communities and patient populations and lead their profession in addressing health equity in our country for a long time to come. Please join Sam in ensuring the future of this remarkable program and make a gift today.
