Service Learning for Medical Students

The LCME (Liaison Committee on Medical Education) defines service learning as educational experiences that encompass 3 criteria:

  1. Medical students' service to the community in activities that respond to community-identified concerns
  2. Student preparation
  3. Student reflection on the relationships among their participation in the activity, their medical school curriculum, and their roles as citizens and medical professionals

It is our hope to provide UTHSC medical students the opportunity to engage their community with both scholarly intention and humanitarian compassion through service learning.
