By amplifying diverse lived experiences and patient-generated ideas for change, the Center for Patient Partnerships transforms healthcare to prioritize the well-being of patients, families and communities.
Our interdisciplinary approach combines experiential education, action research, advocacy and systems change.
Our statement on racial justice
For two decades the Center for Patient Partnerships has prepared emerging leaders to take on complexity. Whether it’s in a classroom, in the community, or online, our approach grounds students in reflection, listening, and empathy that strengthens one of the key elements found in successful 20th-century leaders: Self-awareness.
Our students, who come from a wide range of disciplines, learn directly from clients as they navigate complicated challenges that emerge within health care, human services, benefits, legal, and insurance systems.
As we assist patients seeking safe, necessary health care options, we actively share patients’ stories with policymakers and people who design services to ensure that systems become more responsive to the lived experiences of people most affected by health, social, and economic problems.
