Make a Difference, Enhance Your Education
Community service allows students to bring the knowledge learned in the classroom to life while contributing to communities and providing a solid foundation for professional altruism. There are a variety of opportunities for medical students to improve the health and environment of our community, from joining a service-focused medical student organization to teaming up with one of our community partners.
