Social mission refers to the contribution of a school in its programs, and the performance of its graduates, faculty, and leadership in advancing health equity and addressing health disparities. The Social Mission Metrics Initiative focuses on the creation and use of metrics to measure social mission in dental, medical, and nursing schools across the United States. The Initiative provides school leaders with a tool to objectively assess the status of social mission at their school, with aims to 1) advance the field of social mission measurement and 2) enhance the national conversation around social mission in health professions education.
This webinar describes the development and usage of social mission metrics and discusses implications for future work in this area.
