A Way to Contextualize the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH): Integrating Lived Experience Panels into Medical Education
Given the importance of the social determinants of health (SDOH) in driving health outcomes and inequities in population health, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education has recognized the need to provide SDOH training during undergraduate medical education since 2016 (1). During this time, there has been progress towards integrating SDOH education with most medical schools offering some type of curricula as a part of formal training. Though the exact type of curricula varies greatly and has evolved beyond lectures to include simulations, needs assessments, community engagement and a variety of activities aimed at placing the learner in the shoes of the patient, we need as many tools as possible in the ever-expanding toolkit to engage our students in new ways (2).
