A Framework for Educating Health Professionals to Address the Social Determinants of Health

Date of Review: December, 2019

This is an incredible and comprehensive resource that provides guidance to educators involved in “Educating Health Professional’s” recommended and unifying framework for addressing social determinants of health in health professional education. Linked to the framework are models and recommendations that educators can structurally use to align education, organization, and community, along with other sectors, to meet health needs. This resource may be helpful for health educators and faculty that plan and integrate health professional programs and curricula in universities and colleges. This is a very high level resource that is ideal for senior leaders involved in designing these learning platforms. I personally have used this resource many times when thinking through best practices in this field. — Ashti Doobay Persaud, MD, NCEAS
