Curriculum for Health Disparities and the Underserved (CHDU)


The UMMS Curriculum on Health Disparities and the Underserved consists of multiple learning experiences spanning the four years of medical school and integrated into the overall UMMS curriculum.

CHDU is designed to have a logical longitudinal progression such that intended learning outcomes build upon each other as students progress from the first through fourth years. Students will graduate with a sense of social responsibility toward lower socioeconomic status patients and a vision of future careers that include public service.
