Population Health Track

Population Health (PH) is an approach to health that aims to improve the health of an entire population and seeks to step beyond the individual-level focus of mainstream medicine by addressing a broad range of factors that impact health on a population-level, such as environment, literacy, ethnicity, social structure, resource distribution, etc. An important theme in population health is "the significance" of social determinants of health

The CwiC-PH track will include longitudinal mentored relationships, working closely with key faculty; didactic sessions and group seminars; experiential opportunities; on-line programs; enhanced third year clerkships; and opportunities to apply credits to other advanced degree programs (e.g. 15 credits toward Jefferson MD/MPH)

The CwiC-PH track is ideal for those interested in:

  • A career in academic medicine and population health
  • Community based research in future practice locally and globally
  • Addressing health equity and social justice
  • Improving quality and cost of care
  • Engaging with communities locally and globally
  • Achievement beyond the curriculum
