CUNY School of Medicine

Full/Part Time




The Department of Community Health and Social Medicine (CHASM) at the CUNY School of Medicine plays a critical and leading role in our mission-driven BS/MD program aimed at recruiting those who are under-represented in medicine and producing broadly educated, highly skilled primary care practitioners to provide patient-centered community-oriented care to underserved communities. The Medical School’s curriculum is centered on a comprehensive effort to educate our students in the social, economic, political, and behavioral determinants of health and disease, with a focus on population health, community engagement, health care policy and eliminating health inequities. The Department research agenda is centered on advancing health equity and eliminating racial and other intersecting inequities through chronic disease epidemiology, health behavior, upstream health policy and systems, health services and community-based research.

The CHASM department is seeking an Adjunct Lecturer for the Spring 2022 semester for the MED 11209: Introduction to Population Health and Community Oriented Primary Care course.

This course is designed to introduce students to a wide range of community/population health issues including, but not limited to: theories commonly used within population health, the social determinants of health evidence base, and their applications to approaches to the health of individuals and communities. There is a focus on how social determinants, including social, cultural, economic, and environmental factors impact the health of individuals, communities, and populations. As a discipline, community and population health has historical roots in social movements that view health as a human right and form of social justice. Building upon this foundation, an explicit focus of this course is to examine health disparities across various social determinants, and strive to understand and develop solutions for their elimination.

The adjunct can expect to dedicate approximately 12-15 hours/week to the course (includes class prep, teaching of virtual class, in person class time, virtual office hours, grading, etc.)
