Community Service Programs

Linking Medical Students to the Community Through Service and Learning Opportunities

 

The mission of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Office of Community Service Programs is to create, provide and support service and civic engagement opportunities for and by medical students. Our goal is to enhance medical education through meaningful service and learning experiences that benefit the community and address a recognized need.

 

 
MEDiC

Caring for the Underserved

 

The MEDiC student-run free clinics in Madison are just one example of UW Health's dedication to improving the health of the communities we serve. MEDiC was one of many reasons the UW School of Medicine and Public Health received the Association of American Medical Colleges Spencer Foreman Award for Outstanding Community Service in 2013.
