Strong proposals are expected to address community needs through projects that will:
- Engage TUSM students in a Community Service Learning (CSL) experience in an underserved setting
- Provide direct or indirect service to the community (as opposed to just provide a clinical experience that happens to be in an underserved setting)
- Address an area of community-identified need
- Demonstrate potential for sustainability beyond the funding period
Our focus is on projects in which medical students address health disparities and/or social determinants of health while also fulfilling the expectations of the CSL curricular requirement (a minimum of 50 hours of service). Additionally, we are open to proposals focused on researching the effectiveness of the current CSL program.
