What is Urban Service Track?
The Urban Service Track (UST) is an interprofessional education (IPE) program that unites 6 health profession schools, 4 campuses, 2 universities, and multiple community organizations and clinicians. The main goal of this unique curricular track is to develop a group of health care professionals dedicated to caring for urban, underserved populations and who are committed to interprofessional teamwork. UST Scholars and faculty provide community outreach to 4,000-5,000 of Connecticut’s neediest citizens each year.
The UST program also places strong emphasis on public health and primary care as a career pathway. The core values of UST are Urban, Underserved, Interprofessionalism, and Primary Care.
