Teaching About Health Disparities Using a Social Determinants Framework

Date of Review: December, 2019

This resource is a journal article published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine that advocates for a shift in medical education that integrates a social determinants of health (SDH) framework into the medical education curriculum. The resource provides a rationale for the importance of SDH in medical education and proposes how such a curriculum shift could be implemented. This resource may be helpful to educators and faculty leaders in medical education. — Ashti Doobay-Persaud, MD, NCEAS
