Teaching Population Health through Student-Run Clinics Webinar

December 13, 2016 (90 min.)


Student-run clinics have been established at many medical schools nationwide. They provide healthcare access to underserved populations, serve as an early clinical training experience for learners, and create an opportunity for interprofessional collaboration. As institutions consider innovative ways to teach population health, some student-run clinics have been a propitious environment for experiential learning of these important principles. This webinar highlights student-run clinic models from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine External Link and Cooper Medical School of Rowan University External Link, each with an explicit focus on population health. There is an extended Q&A session at the end.
