Health Equity Advancement and Leadership Through Community Engagement   

Quarter-long course
Health Equity Advancement and Leadership Through Community Engagement (HEAL-CE) is a new course for first and second-year medical students with an interest in better understanding how to engage with communities as physicians to advance a health equity agenda. Through self-reflection, group discussions, and working through cases, students will develop practical skills to examine the drivers of health inequities and develop as physician advocates able to better address these inequities. This course has been uniquely co-developed by six current Stanford Medical School students, and will be facilitated by faculty, peer students, and experts in the areas of health equity and community engagement. Students wishing to commit to a service-learning project or working with a community partner have the option to take the class for 3 units.
