Introducing the Diploma in Climate Medicine

Building on the success of its Physician Fellowship in Climate & Health, the University of Colorado School of Medicine is pleased to announce a new professional development program for health care providers of all specialties.


The Diploma in Climate Medicine from the CU school of Medicine offers
professional distinction for expertise and leadership on this growing health crisis


Overview


Government, nonprofit funding agencies, and hospital systems are scaling up climate and health opportunities. Health care providers must learn to lead on:

  • Climate & Health Science Policy
  • Environmental Justice
  • Health Care System Decarbonization and Resiliency
  • Workforce Training
  • Climate & Health Research and Dissemination
  • 
 
 
 
 

BECOME A LEADER IN THE CRITICAL HEALTH ISSUE OF OUR TIME.

Community leaders, deans, department chairs, elected officials, hospital CEOs, nonprofit executive directors, and government agencies will be tasked with climate plans. They will need expertise and counsel on the health impacts of their operations and
 policies to benefit their constituencies and patients.


Our ecosystems are now under such stress that widescale human suffering is all but a certainty. Record heat exposures, flooding episodes, wildfires, hurricanes, and forced displacement are increasingly exacerbating health disparities, predominantly in
 our most vulnerable populations.





Diploma Climate and HealthThe first diplomate class at the National Center for Atmospheric Research

Diplomates in Climate Medicine will be credible, knowledgeable, and effective leaders on smart, patient-centric policies on this critical health crisis.

Few clinicians can effectively articulate the dizzy interplay between public health, energy policy, geopolitics, earth science, government, and medicine. Policy has stalled due to the difficulty in translating complex earth science into convincing connections
 between extreme heat and illness in urban communities, pandemics and loss of biodiversity, or severe weather and food insecurity.

Climate Medicine Diplomates can fill that gap, crafting patient-centric narratives when working with CEOs, community leaders, and policymakers by:


  • Advocating for climate-resilient policies.
  • Credibly addressing deeply rooted environmental justice issues.
  • Effectively leading health systems to de-carbonize.
  • 
 
 



Who Should Participate?


The Diploma in Climate Medicine is open to United States based healthcare practitioners who hold an advanced degree and licensure in any area of clinical practice. This includes prehospital care providers, nurses, allied health professionals, and physicians.


If you are a clinician concerned with the impacts of climate change on the health of families, patients, and society who is ready to become an effective change agent please consider the Diploma. You’ll receive hands-on training and the professional
 credentials necessary to be a credible, knowledgeable, and influential voice in advancing smart, patient-centric policy in climate and health. This program will give you the background and skills to take a leadership role on behalf of communities,
 health care systems, academic institutions, NGOs, governments, and policymakers.

    Teaching Methods & Course Features:

    • Hands-On: We Aim to Get Our Hands Dirty - rocky mountain national parkFor course one, we'll ask you to analyze health implications after running your own climate models with researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder. We'll visit the firsthand devastation of wildfires with rangers at Rocky Mountain National Park.

    • "Climate Rounds" With Case-Based, Small Groups - We will present you with complex, multi-faceted problems, reinforcing core competencies. You'll have a team of diverse peers with whom to connect and problem-solve.

      We believe content must be relevant and relatable to each student’s community and clinical practice. We, therefore, integrate a process of reflection and inquiry early in our teaching method. After participants review lectures and assigned readings, instructors will ask students to respond to a content question representing a real-life clinical scenario or reflect upon a climate challenge or response opportunity in their community.

      Later, students will meet in “Climate Rounds” — small, facilitated discussion groups — to test their analysis with their peers. The class discusses the case with the facilitator as a catalyst and guide. The facilitator will point out considerations the group has overlooked, present other case studies, elaborate on current areas of controversy, and elicit from participants the lessons of experience.
    • Cross-Sector - We have three cross-sector themes running through the course:

      • Climate Equity & Environmental Justice - Hearing from boots on the ground nonprofits investing in innovative solutions to make our communities healthier.

      • Communication - We'll do a deep dive on how to talk climate and health and give you hacks on presenting complex scientific information, speaking to skeptical constituents, and writing a successful op-ed.

      • Leadership - How we, as health care providers, can empower wise policy through a basic understanding of machinations of policy creation and implementation.
    • Key Elements

      • Courses are combination of asynchronous remote and in-person.
      • Small cohort of students and nationally renowned faculty to ensure networking with peers and faculty.
      • Interactive sessions, simulations, 1:1 leadership and communication coaching, individual feedback assessments.
      • In-field experiential learning.
      • Each course may be taken separately for a certificate from the CU School of Medicine; completion of all five certificates will earn a Diploma in Climate Medicine.
      • We are committed to a diverse learning environment. Women and underrepresented groups in medicine are particularly encouraged to apply.

    Climate MedicineFew clinicians can effectively articulate the dizzy interplay between public health, energy policy, geopolitics, earth science, government and medicine. It is no underestimation that recent policy has stalled from the difficulty in translating complex earth science into convincing linkages between extreme heat and illness in urban communities; loss of biodiversity and pandemics; or extreme weather and food insecurity.

    Climate doctors can fill that gap, crafting patient-centric narratives when sparring over policies with CEOs, community leaders, and policymakers in advocating for climate-resilient policies; credibly addressing deeply rooted environmental justice issues; and effectively leading health systems to decarbonize. This is where to begin a solid foundation to build upon for your Diploma in Climate Medicine.

     

    Features of this course include:

    • Hearing from a truly world-renowned interdisciplinary group of experts like atmospheric scientists, environmental health doctors, as well as behavioral and communication science experts.
    • We’ll spend a day at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Mesa Laboratory to meet with world-class climate scientists and practice with state-of-the-art climate models to see how fossil fuel burning or wildfire pollution might impact climate warming in the coming decades.
    • We’ll head into Rocky Mountain National Park, to hear from fire-fighters and forest rangers who are on the front lines of defending communities from climate-fueled wildfires

    Course Agenda

     


     

    Sustainable Hospital SystemsThe American health sector is responsible for an estimated 8.5% of national carbon emissions. Its full-cost operational footprint is enormous when considering facility operations, sources of energy use, and goods and services supply chains. We need health care champions to implement cost-saving strategic investments through energy and waste efficiencies; "greener" operative practices; healthier food services; and smarter purchasing. All represent tangible opportunities for you to lead as a change agent, both as a heavyweight within the American economy and as a care provider charged with the health and well-being of our communities.  

    Features of this course include:

    • A deep dive into health care system best practices, with experts from Healthcare with Harm and Practice Greenhealth, clarifying measurement and analysis of “big green” data and implementation of carbon-reducing policies.
    • We’ll hear from “best-in-class” health care facilities and speak with staff on how their efforts have impacted patient care. And we will hear from federal policy experts on how the U.S. government seeks to decarbonize health care as a health care service provider, purchaser, regulator, and sponsor of research, education, and training.

    Course Agenda 2023

     


     

    Disaster Response and RecoveryLancet has called climate change the “biggest global health threat of the 21st century.” Consider that wildfires are more intense and longer lasting than ever before. We have suffered from months of persistent air degradation across huge swaths of our country, resulting in untold illness. We have experienced flooding, structural damage and displacement from hurricanes, each year increasingly energized from warmer average temperatures. The data tell us that chaotic changes to our ecosystems are undermining healthy living, exacerbating illness, and stressing social determinants of health. The list of climate-related health effects is no different than a busy emergency department triage list: fainting (from extreme heat), shortness of breath (from degraded air quality and increased aeroallergens), fever (from vector-borne diseases), vomiting and diarrhea (from diminished water quality), and trauma (from extreme weather events). Understanding the root causes and responses to disasters will be a crucial part of your DiCM experience.

    Features of this course include:

    • A hands-on, visceral experience of disaster planning and response at a major national training center. We’ll hear from federal policy experts on the nation’s plans for disaster mitigation for communities as well as health care responders.Case studies will include responses to climate disasters from extreme heat events in the Western United States, extreme weather in the Gulf coasts and Caribbean, and threats to major safety net hospitals in New Orleans and New York City.
    • We’ll hear from national and regional experts as we interrogate concepts like vulnerability assessments, climate health adaptation and resilience plans, and heat action plans. Finally, we’ll connect with environmental justice experts, reviewing and sharing opportunities for clinicians to assist in disaster preparedness and response efforts, in an equitable, inclusive, responsible, and empowering manner.

    Course Agenda



     

    Community Resilience

    The economic and structural systems fueling climate change and environmental degradation, also shape our existing public health landscape and social determinants of health. If we seek to protect the health and wellness of our communities, the Diplomat in Climate Medicine will need to be facile in understanding basic concepts of public health drivers and policy at the individual, local, and regional level.Understanding the social and health impacts of innovations and transformational policy in the transportation, built environment, energy, food and agriculture sectors will be critical for the effective health professional advocate. As a DCM, you can be a clarion voice for your community, schooled in these concepts to advocate for and effect climate-smart and climate-ready public health policies.

    Features of this course include:

    • Basics on public health infrastructure and public health policy, and introduction to regional and national experts in climate resilience. We’ll hear from experts and community leaders working with cities and states on healthy, sustainable, and resilient transportation and land-use policy. Similarly, experts and community leaders will share lessons on how to transform community built environments and public health infrastructure (water, air, energy systems) to be healthy and resilient to the climate demands of the 21st century and beyond. Highlighted case studies will include the City of Denver’s Office of Climate Action, Sustainability, and Resiliency on how they are leveraging the voter-approved Climate Protection Fund to advance environmental justice in vulnerable urban neighborhoods.
    • We’ll partner with the Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health as we build strong communication and advocacy skills, as well as foster a strong network of clinician allies working regionally and nationally. This will culminate in a day at the Capitol, an opportunity to advocate for a healthy climate with in person visits to the US Congress.

     

     

    Fire

    The first four courses will give you a firm foundation on the health impacts of climate change, opportunities and barriers for health sector responses, public health and policy strategies, as well as communication and advocacy skills. This final course will turn its lens toward global challenges and issues of international governance.

    Features of this course include:

    • We’ll examine how health impacts of climate change are inextricably linked with global carbon economics and development needs. We’ll review the basics of renewable energy sources (wind, solar) and hear from a wide range of experts and stakeholders working on energy transformation policy. Occupational and environmental implications of current and future energy supply chains will be stressed, and advances in sustainable mining, geo-engineering, and carbon capture will all be appraised using ‘just transition’ principles.
    • We’ll examine environmental rights, climate justice, human rights, and planetary health frameworks, as we hear from experts in international governance, law and treatise in partnership with the Council on Foreign Relations. We’ll hear various perspectives on how to leverage international environmental and health policy to address complex global health and development challenges like climate-related drought, malnutrition, displacement and violence.
    • Transparent, accurate and comparable accounting of greenhouse gas emissions is the foundation for global climate action. We’ll hear from economists and environmental engineers with expertise in supply chain transparency. Evolving opportunities and challenges in environmental, social, governance structures, and greenhouse gas emission accounting will be reviewed.
