Community Engagement Committee

The Community Engagement Committee promotes interprofessional community engagement focused on teaching and service. In teaching, we advance service-learning; in service, we advance action that responds to community-identified need.  Below are some examples of community-based programs at the medical school for which we provide guidance and support:

UMMS Population Health Clerkship

UMMS Summer Service Learning Assistantship

UMMS Martin Luther King Semester of Service Student Awards
