Medical Student Involvement

CART - Community Action Research Track

The Community Action Research Track (CART) is based on the principles of community-based participatory research (CBPR), population medicine with special emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention, and the social determinants of health. Students enrolled in CART participate in a coordinated program of instruction, electives, ambulatory care rotations, and service-learning experiences with populations in underserved areas. This program offers a three-year experience in which data collection and student progress are monitored in a cumulative manner.
