Conscientious Clinician Program
The Conscientious Care Team Program was developed as an intervention to address these gaps and to support students of the health professions, as well as those in social support services (e.g., physicians, public health professionals, social workers, case managers, counselors, pharmacists) in identifying the historical and social trends of HIV/AIDS and common STIs in the United States, as well as to support the needs of marginalized groups, including communities of color and the LGBTQ community. The program also aims to engage budding health providers in innovative and up-to-date prevention and treatment strategies, including biomedical interventions. Through a series of dynamic group activities and self-reflection exercises, the workshop also engages participants in identifying their unconscious biases and personal challenges when working with vulnerable communities and walk them through exercises that build self-awareness and cultural competence in hopes of improving health outcomes for the most vulnerable populations.
These workshops will also help you to develop critical thinking and writing skills. You may also include this experience on your health professions graduate schools application.
