Foundations of Health Care Delivery (FHD)

Foundations of Health Care Delivery (FHD) is a longitudinal four-year course which embeds students into care delivery systems to:

  • Prepare professionals with systems level skills necessary to provide care that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable
  • Integrate health systems science with clinical care
  • Cultivate respectful professionals

The vision of the course is to offer students a longitudinal experience in which they learn about the systems of health care as well as foundational skills that help them better understand how health systems function, while at the same time gaining important skills to function in and eventually modify those systems.
