Welcome to EHM

Welcome to Ecology of Health and Medicine. We hope that you refer to this website throughout your medical school career. This course is dedicated to the environment we exist in as med students, as physicians and as patients. This course integrates principals of ethics, professionalism, inter professional education and communication, health equity, diversity, social determinants of health, global and population health, lifelong learning, health systems form and function and health systems improvements through your four year curriculum.

While these topics may seem disparate, mastery of these topics adds to your skill in the art of medicine as much as a the science.  This content seldom has right or wrong answers.  The complexities of health care and individual patient experience frequently make for difficult and complicated conversation.  In developing this course we have worked to make the teaching of our content additive and appropriate for the time in your medical education.  While you may browse the site in any order you please, we will present the course in a very intentional order.
