Population Health Clerkship: Caring for Populations Within Their Communities
The Population Health Clerkship (PHC) is a team-based, interprofessional, community engaged experience required of all second year medical and graduate nursing students. Students are placed in small groups directed by academic and community preceptors from a range of professions and disciplines. Each team’s experience is unique.
The overarching goal of the PHC is to provide relevant real-world context as students expand their understanding of public and population health concepts.
