The Health Equity Training Pathway is a two-year, cohort-based professional development community for IU School of Medicine graduate medical education (GME) trainees. The pathway is integrated into existing training programs, without adding length to training. Our mission is to use a health systems science lens to educate and empower resident physicians to discuss, identify, act upon, and teach health inequities in their everyday practice of medicine. Our vision is to develop health-equity-minded leaders in medicine throughout Indiana and the United States.
The Health Equity Training Pathway will provide:
- Training in core principles and concepts related to health equity and health systems science.
- Opportunities to practice skills while contributing to efforts to build capacity for health equity from UME to GME.
- Support to develop and implement a pilot health equity scholarly project related to each learner’s interests (e.g., curricula, community-engagement).
