Connection to IUSM
College and House is a set of learning communities supported by the Medical Student Council. It mirrors the structure of the Mentorship and Advising Program which will be known as MAP, led by Medical Student Education. The program features a house-based mentorship system to address both student engagement and student wellness.
IUSM defines Service-Learning as a structured learning experience that actively engages students, faculty, and community members in a dynamic partnership that intentionally connects community-identified concerns with institutional learning objectives.
The volunteer faculty advisor serves as a positive medical role model and helps explore challenges and seek solutions with (not for) the learners while encouraging medical students to strive for excellence.
