Welcome to the University of Connecticut Health Leaders Program!
The University of Connecticut Health Leaders (UCHL) is a community-based, pre-health program founded for bridging health care disparities by addressing the social determinants of health for the State of Connecticut. The University of Connecticut is the main health system that takes care of Medicaid patients in our state, thus a great environment for such a program to exist.
UCHL functions all year, focusing on training pre-professional students on how they can help advocate and improve the way we deliver health care for our patients. In return, we hope these students will enter their career field more eager and prepared to tackle the social determinants of health that affect the health of our patients.
Learn more about our program at one of our upcoming virtual information sessions!
Welcome, from the UCHL Leadership Team!
