Population Health & Health Equity Rotation

Date of Review: June, 2020

This resource contains the curriculum for a Population Health and Health Equity Rotation for family medicine resident. There are 4 PDFS that contain expectations, assignments and activities guidelines for the program. The main objective of the program is to understand and learn about community health as well as a range of high priority populations. The residents participate in several clinics that serve a diverse set of populations and learn about home visits, homeless shelter and paramedics services to understand a population’s specific needs and how to organize a clinical practice to serve these needs. There are interactive readings, reflections and assignments that allow for learners to assess their knowledge and understanding. The rotation structure and instructional methods could be applied to other residency programs to emphasize community medicine. –Ashti Doobay-Persuad, MD, NCEAS
