Clerkship Service Learning

As part of the required Third Year Clerkship in Family Medicine, each student spends on-half day each week working with a community organization serving the underserved. The purpose of the COPC/Service Learning experience is to increase each student's understanding of the primary care needs of the underserved in our community while simultaneously working with community organizations to help address these needs. Students work with addiction services organizations, schools, pre-school centers, domestic violence organizations, and other community partners providing health education, screening and other services.
