The UCSD Center for Community Health is a multidisciplinary group of professional physicians, researchers, and public health and community outreach educators committed to improving health equity. This goal is achieved largely through transnational research, translating advances from basic science and clinical research into the community, and developing the pipeline and future health care workforce of California and the Nation.

With funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), UCSD established the Hispanic Center of Excellence (HCOE) and the Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP): National Academies. The HCOE provides training to medical students and young physicians who have talent and interest in the health professions, can compete for and retain positions in academic medicine, and have the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver culturally appropriate health services to all segments of the population. The HCOE provides the leadership, infrastructure and resources needed to: 1) develop and conduct academic enrichment activities that increase the recruitment, retention and graduation rate of Hispanic/Latinx and other URiM (underrepresented in medicine) medical students; 2) improve the retention and rate of promotion of Hispanic/Latinx and other URiM junior faculty by providing mentoring, training in research and pedagogy; and career development activities; 3) promote the participation of students and faculty in biomedical, behavioral and health disparities research, disease prevention, intervention, and the dissemination of culturally appropriate information on health issues that affect underserved populations; and, 4) design curriculum, provide instruction and support community-based clinical training that demonstrate and reinforce the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviors employed by individuals in a culturally competent and responsive healthcare delivery system.
