Open Access Teaching Social Determinants of Health to Future Health Care Leaders

Download Article:
This essay presents an approach to training future leaders in health adminis tration and health policy that tasks students to regularly consider the benefits and challenges to integrating health care delivery, public health, and social services. A primary way by which this aim is realized is education on the social determinants of health (SDOH). We demonstrate how SDOH can be integrated across a health administration curriculum and how SDOH concepts, principles, and applications are critical aspects of all competency domains. We present a combination of new, current, and potential future activities related to teaching SDOH to healthcare managers in training.
