Service Learning

Brush1Service Learning is a required curricular component in the College of Human Medicine, as part of the SCRIPT (Service, Care of Patients, Rationality, Integration, Professionalism, and Transformation) competencies adopted by the college's faculty. 

Students must complete 40 hours of a structured service-learning experience as a required curriculum component for graduation. This experience combines community service with preparation and reflection. Students will “learn about community concerns in context, will connect their service with their academic coursework, and will reflect on their future roles as professionals” (Seifer, SD. “Service-learning: Community-campus partnerships for health professions education”). 

Service Learning may span all four years of the college curriculum and may involve more than one project or organization.
