School of Medicine: Population Health Scholar Track 
The Population Health Scholar Track is a comprehensive, longitudinal curriculum in population health, which includes additional training experiences and a rigorous outcomes-based scholarly project. The goal of the track is to give students the knowledge and skills to apply population health principles to clinical practice and contribute to the improvement of the health of individuals, communities, and populations. Future physicians need to be trained in population health to address the challenges of reducing the cost and improving the quality of health care in order to improve outcomes and reduce disparities.
