Urban Underserved Track


  • Students are expected to attend and participate in all track sessions (unless otherwise noted). During Phases 1 and 2, track sessions are usually from 1-3pm twice per month during times designated for track activities by the School of Medicine.

  • Students must enroll through their respective programs to the UUT elective and engage in course modules on CANVAS.

  • Students must also participate in approximately 3 community based service/outreach activities each semester.

  • UUT students are also expected to complete a longitudinal project focused on urban underserved populations – this may be completed between phase 1 and phase 2. Due to program length MD students may choose to engage in a clinical rotation pertinent to urban underserved populations in their fourth year instead. These community service projects may be integrated into individual medical student Mentored Scholarly Activity projects for the School of Medicine requirement.

  • Medical students must complete their MSA focused on health issues which impact urban underserved populations unless an alternate MSA is approved by the UUT Director.

  • All Urban Underserved Track students are required to participate in the survey/evaluation process throughout their duration in the track and after their graduation as a requirement to being accepted in to the track. The faculty and staff work diligently to minimize the burden of the evaluation process of the track participants. The evaluation process is integral to the track’s ability to demonstrate short-term and long-term outcomes and student feedback drives continuous improvements to the track curriculum. Evaluation of the track will be conducted through brief, post-session surveys as well as more comprehensive end-of-semester and end-of-year questionnaires. All data will be collected in an unidentified manner.

  • Must be willing to engage with other UUT peers through track social activities and social media accounts.
