More than 150 faculty and physicians from across the country have attended the innovative Faculty Development Program "Addressing the Health Needs of the Underserved" since 1999. Under the direction of Dr. Ellen Beck, the program provides the physician with the administrative, scholarly, and teaching skills to develop and implement programs in the primary care of the underserved.

The 3-week course curriculum features lecture, self-directed study, and experiential learning in the following areas: Community Health (Environmental/Occupational, Promotoras model, inner city schools, student-run free clinics), Teaching Skills (presentation skills, course design, program evaluation, Scholarly Skills (needs assessment, collecting data, using data to change policy), and Administration Skills (leadership development, small group facilitation, rotation implementation, community collaboration).

Designed to aid the practicing or teaching family medicine physician to develop teaching programs for medical students or residents in community medicine, do research in primary care of the underserved, and create community-based programs, this Faculty Development Program has also motivated its students to take on high-visibility leadership roles. Alumni of the Program will also attend and call informal meetings at national conferences sponsored by such organizations as the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine and the American College of Physicians.

The UCSD Student-Run Free Clinic Project model has been replicated in more than 10 other communities across the nation.
