Pathway to Discovery in Health & Society

The Pathway to Discovery in Health & Society prepares UCSF learners to be scholars and leaders in health policy, health systems, health disparities, community engagement, advocacy, social science, and/or behavioral science.

Goals of the Health & Society Pathway

  1. Participants will be familiar with the current state in three substantive domains: Social & Behavioral Science, Population Health Disparities, and Health Systems and Policy.
  2. Participants will achieve a basic level of competency in three areas: Research and Evaluation, Leadership & Advocacy, and Community Engagement.
  3. Participants will complete a legacy product through which they will develop deeper substantive knowledge and an enhanced skill set in the project area.  Learning will be both didactic and experiential. Learners may aim to achieve different levels of expertise and engagement regarding their project.
