Academic Overview:  The overarching goal for this inter-professional course is to develop leaders with a sense of social responsibility and required skills to respond to the complex health related needs of our increasingly diverse communities. Through cultural immersion, field visits, guided reflection, seminars, and hands-on community experiences, students will gain a global understanding of social determinants of health so that they can contribute to the creation of healthier communities. The course will take place in Ndola and Lusaka, Zambia. The focus of the learning will be about social determinants of health in its broadest form and the interconnectedness of economics, geography, history, politics and culture on health. This inter-professional course will focus on learning to work in effective teams; learning and teaching alongside one another; and building on the strengths of various professions to address social determinants of health and consequences of inequity.
