Non Clinical

All of the Health Professions are careers that serve others in need. A student called to a vocation of service should demonstrate that dedication to service during their undergraduate career. This call to service can take many forms (e.g., tutoring, helping a low-income clinic, building homes, working at a food bank, and peer service via service to your dorm or campus community). Ideally, students should begin with their service work, demonstrate leadership, and train the next set of volunteers so the project can remain viable. Students should not look upon these service opportunities as items to be checked off a list but as a way to test their call to service and reflect upon a service life. Some schools require as much as 200 hours of non-clinical service involving direct contact with people in vulnerable or disadvantaged circumstances.

Service opportunities are available through the Center for Social Concerns, dorm service, clubs, and athletic team projects. Projects are public every week, on breaks, and for more extended programs over the summer.
