Hospital description

For more than half a century, the Public Health/Preventive Medicine Residency Program has trained physicians in health promotion and disease prevention at the population level. Graduates have served as leaders in public health practice, epidemiologic and clinical research, and clinical preventive medicine.

The DOHMH is a dynamic environment where elective participants can experience a large local health department tackling urban public health issues. Elective participants receive a broad overview of DOHMH responsibilities and functions through field visits, meetings and
lectures. They will observe the clinician/health department partnership in order to better serve their patients and communities.

The elective provides a unique opportunity to work on a project with DOHMH professionals.
By participating in the day-to-day work of the DOHMH, the trainee–whether future clinician
or public health specialist–will experience a variety of measures employed to promote
wellness and prevent illness in individuals, groups, and the population as a whole.
