IFDHE envisions a society of equitable communities where all individuals reach their highest potential for health.
IFDHE advances health equity, diversity, and inclusion by supporting hospitals, health care organizations, and the patients and communities they serve as a trusted partner by disseminating evidence-informed practices, resources and innovations that lead to sustainable transformation in health care.
It's not too early to consider our 2022 Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) opportunity. Graduate students from diverse backgrounds can earn 10-week paid summer internships at major hospitals and health systems. The application period is now open for prospective participants to get a head start on building strong career connections!
Our latest health equity resource toolkit offers guidance to hospitals and health systems on how to build effective hospital-community partnerships - meeting health care organizations where they are on their health equity journey.
