[Extract] The need to address the social determinants of health and to promote health equity has become a top priority for various health care organizations (High-Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth, 2016). Part of the solution lies in developing a workforce that understands and has the will to address these issues. Health professionals and health organizations must be socially accountable to the communities they serve. Thus, they need to be people centered and willing to engage in community services (WHO, 2016). Preparing a health workforce that provides holistic or integrated, people-centered care in communities where people live and work demands that educators critically appraise and adjust their educational vision and health care practices.
