Indian Health Pathway

The Indian Health Pathway (IHP) was the rst Pathway created at UW School of Medicine by Dr. Walt Hollow (Assiniboine-Sioux), the first Native American to graduate from the medical school. Dr. Hollow established IHP in 1992 to provide a unique educational experience for medical students to learn how to provide culturally proficient care for American Indian/Alaska Native patients and communities in urban and rural settings.

Latinx Health Pathway

The Hispanic community is one of the most underserved minority groups in WWAMI region and across the U.S. The Hispanic Health Pathway (HHP) was developed to provide medical students at the University of Washington with the necessary training and experiences to make them competent practitioners in urban and rural Hispanic communities.

LGBTQ Health Pathway

The goal of the LGBTQ Health Pathway is to provide a number of educational opportunities and experiences to medical students that will better prepare them to provide culturally responsive care for the LGBTQ population.

Black Health Justice Pathway

Provide medical students with the foundational knowledge to assess health inequities through a critical lens. Provide medical students with tools to advocate for health equity within the UWSOM, in Black communities throughout WWAMI, and in their future practices as physicians.
