Welcome to BUATP

The Boston University Advocacy Training Program (BUATP) at Boston University School of Medicine began in 2005 as a student-led, faculty-mentored free-time elective to teach medical students about social determinants of health and how to advocate on behalf of patients.  Our program has since grown into a longitudinal advocacy curriculum for medical students.

We seek to promote advocacy and awareness of social determinants among all students at the medical campus.  BUATP provides unique educational and leadership opportunities for students interested in learning more about how to they can leverage their roles as health professionals to advocate for change.

Thank you for visiting our website.  If you are interested in learning more about our program or collaborating with us, please email buatp@bu.edu.
