The Office of Community health envisions:
- Community-based clinical training will be widely available across medical specialties
- The student-run Cardinal Free Clinics will be institutionalized and financially sustained as a training program and a community benefit.
- All community-based clinical training will be accompanied by education and training in population health.
The OCH currently provides undergraduate and medical students with an enriched opportunity to work in community-based clinical settings.
We would fall short of really doing something significant if we forgot about the communities that surround us - locally, regionally, nationally and internationally - because at the end of the day, they are whom we serve.
