Welcome to the Social and Community Health Commons of the University of Pennsylvania! 

Our Mission 

SCHC aims to build a culture of community-oriented health care among Penn's diverse professional schools, to develop the next generation of leaders in all fields of medicine committed to social and community health, and to invest Penn's knowledge and resources in improving the health Philadelphia.

Our commons includes students and working individuals from all areas of health, including but not limited to, nursing, midwifery, social work, medicine, and dentistry.
