Urban Health Project

Urban Health Project (UHP) has a mission to educate, inspire, and challenge medical students through their service to underserved communities and to produce more socially responsible physicians who have a greater understanding of the many factors that impact health.  UHP pairs first-year medical students from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine with community organizations in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky serving vulnerable community members.  The clients represent the diverse spectrum of the community including women and children experiencing homelessness, at-risk youth, mothers struggling with addiction, and more.  In 2018, UHP placed 26 interns with 20 community partners for full-time summer internships.  Over the course of eight weeks, the interns provided over 8,000 hours of service, directly impacting over 3,000 individuals, including over 500 children through Project Connect, Su Casa, Lighthouse Youth Services, and others.
