Education and Training

Medical Students

The Community Health section supports the training of medical students in many ways.


The Community Action Research Experience (CARE) is a program designed to train family medicine residents in community action research, equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to engage their community and care for underserved populations. The residents learn to work with community partners who are committed to better understanding the impact of community and population on health determinants, such as physical and social environment, genetic endowment, and individual responses to these determinants.
