MD ID 6004 - Sustainability, Medicine, & Health
Brief Description of Course:

The Rural & Underserved Utah Training Experience (RUUTE) program is delighted to offer "Sustainability, Medicine, & Health". This elective was certified sustainability complete by the University of Utah Sustainable Education Advisory Committee. This course is an opportunity to explore the diverse populations and the challenges and opportunities that exist in working in green healthcare and the impact of the environment on medicine, specifically when treating populations most impacted by environmental changes.
Students in this course will gain a greater awareness about climate change and the environmental conditions that exist and also the complexity of issues facing healthcare providers and patients nationwide and in Utah. Students will also be able to learn from the various environmental and healthcare agencies throughout the State of Utah and elsewhere in their quest to keep the environment healthy and safe.

Students will be invited to consider incorporating sustainability principles into their future practice and working in green healthcare administration as a potential future career choice. Students will be encouraged to engage in self-reflection and be curious throughout the course as they engage in the material regarding sustainability and its impact on communities and their healthcare needs that they may not be familiar with.

This course is open to all medical students.
