Welcome to the Hispanic Health Pathway!

The Hispanic Health Pathway (HHP) is sponsored by the Office of Multiculatural Affairs and the Center for Cultural Proficiency in Medical Education (CC-PriME), and David Acosta, M.D., Associate Dean for Multicultural Affairs, serves as the Director. 

The goal of the HHP is to provide a number of educational opportunities and experiences to medical students that will better prepare them to provide cultural-responsive care for the Hispanic population. The HHP will provide a number of different teaching methods: didactics, modules on-line, problem-based learning experiences, small group discussions, and mentoring opportunities with Hispanic faculty or non-Hispanic faculty who have an expertise in providing cultural-responsive care to Hispanics. Elective clerkship rotations in clinic sites throughout WWAMI that specifically care for a large Hispanic population will also be available for students to participate in. The HHP will provide the students a number of options to learn or improve their Spanish-speaking skills: on-line Spanish language classes; Spanish language course provided by local community colleges and the UW; on-line tutorials; and immersion experiences in Central America. Those students who have completed all of the HHP requirements will be awarded a Certificate of Completion at graduation and will be recognized by the Dean of the School of Medicine of their accomplishment.

If you are interested in participating in the Hispanic Health Pathway, please contact the HHP Advisor, Pam Racansky, M.A. at racansky@u.washington.edu . We invite you to explore the HHP further and click on "Curriculum" and the "Pathway Requirements" to review the program.
