Applying a systems lens to health care delivery has enhanced the medical profession’s recognition of health disparities and the tremendous impact of upstream drivers and social determinants of health. An increased burden of chronic disease and the demand for value-based care are also driving a focus on population-level interventions in addition to the delivery of care to individual patients. With this shift, it has become increasingly important to include population health in the training of future physicians.

In this webinar, speakers will:

  • Compare and contrast population health challenges found in South Africa and the U.S. and what they mean for medical education
  • Share best practices in teaching population health from South African and U.S. medical schools
  • Discuss how integrating population health within health systems science and medical school curriculum more broadly affects training

The speakers are

  • Prof Steve Reid of University of Cape Town, South Africa
  • Dr Rajasekaran of the USA.

Link details will be added to this page in the next few days.
