Students are provided with the resources they need in order to bolster their future careers as professionals, faculty, or researchers with a focus on the elimination of health disparities and advancement of health equity. UHP strives to cultivate a commitment to underserved urban areas, creating a lasting relationship between new professionals and the people they serve.
