The goal of the UUT is to equip students with the knowledge, skill, and compassion necessary to serve the under-served. Activities, coursework, and presentations relative to the vulnerable populations, which may include American Indians/Alaska Natives, Immigrants, Refugees, LGBTQ+ individuals, and the Homeless, will further prepare student physicians for fieldwork, volunteer, and externship experiences.
Students will be exposed to the under-served population through opportunities to engage with families and individuals, clinics, and wherever compassionate care is given to these groups. The UUT functions as a collaborative group, discussing important topics for the vulnerable and under-served. Students will find that this track provides a safe and liberal space where opinions matter. Topics covered may include Maternal/Child Health, LGBTQ+, Disparities in Healthcare and Health Insurance, Cultural Competency, Opioid Epidemic Response, Social Equity and Gentrification, among others.
