Office of Medical Student Service-Learning

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.

Each structured learning experience must have the following requirements:

  • Identified community partner and/or need
  • Pre-experience orientation
  • Service experience
  • Post-experience reflection
