Community partnerships benefit Med students, local organizations
“I’ve only lived in Halifax for a year and I love volunteering and had a lot of volunteering positions at home,” says the second-year Medicine student.
Carmen was part of the inaugural class of Dalhousie Medical School’s Service Learning Program this past term. An add-on to the second-year Medicine curriculum, students have the opportunity to be matched with community partners for a real-world learning experience. Students design tangible outcomes through the completion of a project based on community-identified needs, investing a minimum of 20 hours.
Students say the program is a great opportunity to provide something valuable to local, health-related organizations and to learn about the health-care system from different perspectives.
