Abstract

The importance of preparing students and practitioners in the health professions to under-stand and be equipped to address the social determinants of health (SDOH) has become increasingly urgent. To help support this goal, faculty and staff from the National Collaborative for Education to Address the Social Determinants of Health built a digital platform for health professions educators to access and share curricular work related to SDOH. As of 2022, this online resource included more than 200 curricula focused on SDOH and additional content related to both SDOH and health equity. Educators in undergraduate and graduate medicine, nursing, pharmacy, continuing education, and other fields may find these resources relevant to their teaching practice and consider this platform as a way to disseminate their work in this field to others.
