Jan Gottlieb, MPH – developed a set of resources that:
provide a helpful resource for faculty and staff of medical schools who are planning to, or are currently using service-learning to educate medical students and residents about
- community-oriented primary care
- Healthy People 2010 objectives
- Cultural competence.
The toolkit, which should be applicable to other fields and disciplines as well, is designed to help minimize some of the start-up time involved in developing service-learning programs. It will also provide examples for tailoring service-learning to fit your timeframe. The toolkit was based on three of the COPC-service-learning programs developed by our Department of Family Medicine in collaboration with community partners, over the last eight years.
