Community Partners

The Homeless & Indigent Population Health Outreach Project (HIPHOP) is our opportunity as health care professional students to empower our future patients. Our programs range from pairing medical students and professionals at indigent clinics to attending team meetings about HIV prevention and much more; the common link for all our programs is that they allow us to reach out to the community. The programs offered through HIPHOP, both within the required curriculum and outside of the required curriculum, allow students to engage in a unique service learning opportunity where the surrounding community becomes the classroom. Our books and lectures will make us health professionals but our involvement in the community can help make us healers. Listed below are some of HIPHOP's community sites.
