Serving vulnerable populations in Greater Cincinnati since 1986

Since 1986, Urban Health Project (UHP) has been pairing first year medical students from the University of Cincinnati with non-profit health organizations in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. We strive to both directly impact our community as well as expose the incoming medical professionals to the realities of the underserved community. Our eight week summer internship gives students first-hand experience with the many different aspects of healthcare, while also providing agencies with the extra help they need to provide the best services possible. UHP is a successful organization because of our dedicated board members and our generous funders.
