About the UCHL Winter Intensive Program:

UCHL functions year-round, focusing on training pre-health 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.

The Winter Intensive Program will run from December 19th to January 13th and participants will gain 48 hours of direct patient care experience through volunteering both inpatient at UConn John Dempsey Hospital and outpatient at a primary care clinic. Participants will spen2 weeks inpatient and 2 weeks outpatient. They will be required to complete 12 volunteer shifts in total during the course of the program. There will not be any shifts on 12/24 or 12/31.

Participants in this program will also have the opportunity to learn about social determinants of health and at-risk populations through our educational curriculum. The program curriculum focuses on different populations such as psychiatric patients and the homeless in addition to different topics such as alcohol use disorder and tobacco cessation.
