Program in Medical Education - Health Equity
The UC San Diego School of Medicine (SOM) Program in Medical Education –
Health Equity (PRIME-HEq) is part of a system-wide effort at the
University of California to train physicians better able to meet the
needs of the diverse Californian population who are traditionally
underserved by the medical system.
PRIME-HEq is an inclusive program designed to build on students’
interests and backgrounds in community service. PRIME-HEq faculty work
with students to identify populations or communities at risk for health
disparities. Students will then receive exposure, training, and the
opportunity to work with the identified group to further their passion
in the area and provide knowledge and skills to better equip the students
to improve health equity for the group.
Please join us in our mission
Developing leaders to eliminate health disparities in their communities,
our nation, and the world.
