Through its programs, the Foundation strives to foster innovation in health professional education and to align the education of health professionals with contemporary health needs and a changing health care system.
Education for the Care of Underserved Populations
A large number of people enter the health professions each year, but an insufficient number of health professionals choose to serve in rural and inner-city areas and some of the most vulnerable people in society—racial and ethnic minorities, elderly people, low-income patients and others—are not receiving the care they need. We need to provide training and incentives that support and promote care that meets the needs of these underserved populations.
