Poverty Immersion: A Novel Approach to Teaching the Social Determinants of Health

Tuesday, May 12, 2020
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This workshop may be added to your SAEM20 registration!


In this experiential poverty simulation workshop, learners will experience what it is like to be in the shoes of low-income patients and feel the stress of time, resource, and financial limitations/constraints. The session will be followed by a debrief to discuss the emotions evoked by the simulation and the understanding gained about the social determinants of health (SDOH). Following the debrief, attendees will discuss with faculty how to integrate the simulation into their existing curricula and how to teach about the SDOH.
