Urban Medicine Program (UMED)

The Urban Medicine Program (UMED) is a 4-year curricular program that runs in parallel to the medical school curriculum. UMED is dedicated to training a workforce of future physician leaders, regardless of specialty, who are committed to partnering with local organizations to address health disparities through service learning and advocacy. UMED accomplishes this through seminars, workshops, medical colloquia,  and long-term involvement with community-based organizations via the Longitudinal Community Rotation (LCR). The UMed program focuses on four main themes:

  • Disparities in healthcare access and outcomes
  • Community engagement
  • Diversity and intercultural communication
  • Policy and advocacy
