Civic Engagement and Service

At its heart, medicine is a service profession. You are committing to making a difference in others’ lives as a physician, and there’s no reason to wait until you’ve become one to help others. Being involved in service shows commitment to your community and to society, provides an opportunity to learn about populations and social issues that may be less familiar to you, and helps you to develop important communication and interpersonal skills.

Service opportunities with a health focus are listed in the Clinical Experience section of our website.
