Beyond Flexner is a national movement, focused on health equity and training health professionals as agents of more equitable health care. This movement takes us beyond centuries-old conventions in medical education to train providers prepared to build
a system that is not only better, but fairer.
The broad themes of social mission include social determinants of health, community engagement, disparity reduction, diversity promotion and value-based health care. Interprofessional education and practice are essential components of a transformed health system. This website serves as a repository of information about Beyond Flexner gatherings as well as a a wide array of resources for learning more about the movement and how to integrate social mission into health professions education and practice.
