Commitment to Community Health
The University of Houston College of Medicine has deep roots in Houston and an important goal – to transform health and health care in communities experiencing major disparities. Our medical students gain understanding, skills and tools by working with interdisciplinary teams and community partners for a holistic and community-based approach to health care.
Community Initiatives and Programs
To reinforce our mission, UH College of Medicine uses multiple strategies to connect and engage with local communities.
