Students involved in the Climate Leadership and Environmental Action Network at the UNC School of Medicine recently received the Planetary Health Report Card (PHRC) results for the 2021-2022 academic year, along with other medical schools around the world.
The Planetary Health Report Card (PHRC) is a student-driven, metric-based initiative to inspire planetary health and sustainable healthcare education engagement in medical schools. It’s a way to hold institutions accountable and medical students internationally can use it to grade and compare their home institutions on an annual basis. For the 2021-2022 academic year, the UNC School of Medicine improved from a “C” to a “C+” overall. Within the five categories, UNC SOM received a “C-“ in curriculum, “A-“ in interdisciplinary research, “C-“ in community outreach and advocacy, “B” in support for student-led initiatives, and “C” in campus sustainability.
