Community Engagement


CHHS students benefit from community partnerships with dozens of local community organizations. Through clinical and field placements, internships and externships, research projects, and service-learning opportunities, our students receive invaluable hands-on experiences in community settings. In turn, San Diegans benefit from low- and no-cost access to much-needed health and social services.

Improving Health Outcomes

Our students and faculty partner with numerous organizations throughout the region to improve the health and well-being of our community.

International Community

Our students' involvement does not stop at local initiatives. Through our Global Education program, students can intern abroad and get hands on experience in their field.
