Georgetown University School of Medicine requires each student to complete a total of 20 hours of community service prior to graduation. Cura Personalis, Care of the Person, is one of the many Jesuit values Georgetown University upholds in order to offer its students a unique educational experience. This value suggests individualized attention to the needs of the other, distinct respect for his or her unique circumstances and concerns, and an appropriate appreciation for his or her particular gifts and insights. In prior to render your service, you need to get your site approved if you are not able to find your site from the list

COMMUNITY SERVICE DEFINITION AND EXPECTATIONS : 

  • Direct service within a vulnerable, underserved, or traditionally disenfranchised population group or community

  • Can include non-clinical activities

  • Community service cannot be an activity for which the student is receiving course credit, i.e. IHC service learning experience

  • SITES MUST BE APPROVED BEFORE THE SERVICE IS RENDERED

  • Reflection required for all entries
