Community Service plays an important role in the life of students at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. From our free clinics, to Days of Service and the Summer Service Partnership, UChicago Pritzker students make a significant impact on the health and well-being of the community around them.

Addressing Health Care Disparities

The Health Care Disparities course is a unique feature in the Pritzker curriculum that offers students insights into this pervasive issue in health care. Through dynamic lectures, experiences on the South Side at clinics and community centers, and impactful research projects, students leave the course with a greater awareness of the magnitude of health disparities and are better prepared to effectively communicate across cultures, and with a commitment to reducing these disparities.
