A major challenge in health professions education is how to meaningfully and effectively integrate learning on social determinants of health (SDH) for trainees.  At the University of Texas Medical Branch John Sealy School of Medicine, we recently developed and implemented an innovative program called the Hospital to Home (H2H) program in partnership with the local free clinic, St. Vincent’s Clinic.  This is an educational and value-added experience for medical students as they gain a deeper understanding of the impact of SDH and the importance of integrating the greater social and patient context when developing care plans by identifying and addressing the unmet social needs for hospitalized patients at the bedside for a smoother transition during the crucial post-discharge period.

During this webinar we discussed:

  • the development and implementation of the Hospital to Home (H2H) program in the hospital setting as a value-added experience for medical students
  • the student experiences and intended learning outcomes for first-year and fourth-year student participants
  • the lessons learned and the future direction for the program
