About

Course2019 GW Medical Students Community Service Learning -
Description

The George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences is committed to enriching medical students' education with meaningful, community-based learning experiences that promote health equity and advance the health of the community in which the University resides. In 2019, the school launched a pilot Academic Community Service Learning Program nested within the Community Urban Health Scholarly Concentration of the MD program. 

Medical students who opt for this program will be longitudinally placed with one of four community based organizations: Bread For The City, DC Primary Care Association, Food and Friends and HIPS. They will perform a minimum of 4 hours of community service per month during non-classroom time and meet once a month for a lunch time learning session at the medical school. They will also receive mentoring support for short term and longitudinal projects that benefit the community based organization and the population it serves.
