Advocacy Rotation

We provide a required 1 month rotation early in the intern year during which residents, working in groups, learn advocacy skills, gain a better understanding of social determinants of health and of some of the challenges faced by families in Providence. They explore the communities, learn about resources, and are introduced to a myriad of community organizations. Together, they design projects that address specific issues that come to light during the rotation.  Further, they have the unique opportunity to get to know the local government officials and become active at the State House, which is just down the road from the hospital.
