Community Engagement

PhD students have opportunities for outreach and community engagement through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) where students can make connections with collaborators to work on projects relevant to the community.

The Program in Health Disparities Research leads a number of on-going initiatives for students interested in conducting community outreach.

In addition, the Division of Health Policy and Management has seven research centers all of which are deeply engaged with community and national partners, and has developed research collaborations with several health care organizations in the community at which off-campus research assistantship positions for students have been created.

Our faculty are engaged with the community collaborating with health organizations and departments of public health to better understand urgent public health problems, find solutions, and inform decision makers, often resulting in shaping health policy.
