UW School of Medicine Students who have a special interest in making social determinants of health and advocacy part of their medical careers are encouraged to explore information on the joint MD-MPH programs offered by the UW School of Public Health. Information on the different programs available can be found at: http://sph.washington.edu/mph/. The programs most relevant to social determinants of health are health services (focused on the US health system), global health (focused on health systems in resource-limited settings), environmental health (focused on climate change, worker health, etc.), and epidemiology (focused on the distribution and determinants of diseases and other health conditions). Interested students are encouraged to reach out to those programs for information on program structure and content and on the application process and deadlines.
