Why Service-Learning in Health?

While service-learning is not the same as your clinical experience, it provides hands-on experience that connects to the some of the medical issues you will face as a health care professional. Additionally, health care is moving toward being more community-based. Participating in community health activities through service-learning is a great way to prepare you for the changing world of healthcare.
