NCSP fellows are committed to health equity, an understanding of the multiple complex determinants of health, optimal delivery of health care, and engaging communities at all levels, which is crucial for improving health. Yale was one of the founding institutions of NCSP, which now includes six sites. Comprised of faculty, students, and members of the administration, its charges include advancing social justice—which is strongly tied to diversity and inclusion—within the school and the wider community.

Its commitment to and efforts in this area—largely driven by students—has been critical to many of the improvements in our social justice programs. Our students are very passionate about social justice and have spearheaded such initiatives as standardized questions during medical school interviews that take into account an expanded definition of excellence, as well as programming aimed at diversity and social justice during interviews and Second Look. In this robust program, community representatives receive extensive training and regularly meet with investigators, providing input on study design and subject recruitment and bringing back what they learned to their constituents.
Moving the Needle on Social Justice
YCCI recently expanded this initiative— which has become a national model—by collaborating with Duke University to implement the program in North Carolina. Both institutions are recipients of the National Institutes of Health Clinical and Translational Science Award CTSA , which is designed to accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries into practice to improve health. YCCI is also partnering with the FDA to encourage underrepresented minorities to take part in clinical research and pursue careers in the health professions.
The partnership is focused on raising awareness about the need for minority populations to participate in clinical trials, patient-centered approaches to care and research, and the role technology plays in achieving these goals. For more than 15 years, physicians at the Yale Center for Asylum Medicine, led by Katherine McKenzie, MD, have performed medical evaluations on asylum seekers who have experienced persecution and torture in countries around the world on account of race, religion, ethnicity, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.
Their findings are presented to immigration authorities. Medical students, residents, and fellows at Yale participate in these evaluations and can complete formal training with advocacy groups that partner with the center.
There are scores of investigators at the school conducting research on health equity, social determinants of health, barriers encountered by underrepresented minorities in health professions, and other areas that are connected to social justice. Although there are too many to recount here, a few of these programs are highlighted below:. We have made significant strides in the arena of social justice, but there is much to be done as we examine and change the structures that create health care inequities. We will continue on this path as we contribute to creating a societal shift in which education and health care are equitable for all.
