Social Mission Alliance

Transforming Health Professions Education

NEW Social Mission Resource Library is AVAILABLE NOW

Founded by Dr. Fitzhugh Mullan, we transform health professions education by mobilizing and amplifying learners, teachers, community leaders, policymakers, and their organizations to advance equity in education, research, service, policy, and practice.

Social Mission is the contribution of a school in its mission, programs, and the performance of its graduates, faculty, and leadership in advancing health equity and addressing the health disparities of the society in which it exists.

Social Mission Metrics Badges

Schools with demonstrated commitment to social mission will soon have the opportunity to display their support with a digital badge. Thank you to our 8 Inaugural Supporters for being the first recipients of this new distinction.

Social Mission Metrics Initiative

How we commit to a culture of change

The Social Mission Alliance has held seven National Conferences with over 2,700 attendees. Our organization was created following our first conference in 2012. 

The Social Mission Metrics Initiative aims to advance measurement and awareness of social mission in health professions education.

The Health Workforce Diversity Initiative measures and tracks the racial diversity of the healthcare workforce and students. 

Our Student Assembly brings together interdisciplinary health profession students passionate about social mission, to promote, network, and organize around health equity.

The Health Justice Fellowship is a nine-month virtual program dedicated to nurturing the growth of trainees who already show a commitment to advancing health justice in health professions training.

Use our Social Mission Resource Library to find peer reviewed articles, implementation tools, and real world examples of social mission at institutions across the US. 

Support a better future, for all.

Health professions education continues to require curated connections and alliances between disciplines, generations, worldviews, cultures, sectors, and geographic areas.

The Social Mission Alliance can only continue to effect change with the support of our partners and financial sponsors. Learn about giving.
