The School of Medicine aims to be socially accountable by ensuring that our communities play a fundamental role in our activities. Staff and students seek and practice social justice and accountability by engaging in learning, teaching and research through community partnerships. These partnerships emphasise mutual benefit, social inclusion and community development.
Engagement and public participation is encouraged through four streams, including community engaged learning, health advocacy, community engaged research, and direct philanthropy. A unifying objective is the creation of healthier communities through increased health equity by working and learning with the communities we serve.
