Collaborative Student Volunteer and Service Projects

Seeking your submissions for the next phase of this collection

As healthcare professionals continue to work on the frontlines and community challenges and needs arise or intensify, medical and other health professions students and residents are responding with new, innovative efforts to support their peers, communities, and local health care providers and systems.
While we are actively seeking submissions of student volunteer and service experiences, particularly those that are virtual and/or otherwise prioritize individual and community safety, we are specifically asking for projects that focus on these areas: (1) diversity, equity, and inclusion, including antiracism, (2) public and population health, and (3) collaborations (interprofessional, inter-institutional, with health systems and community organizations). Understanding that schools are considering engaging students in efforts to vaccinate the public, we are also interested in vaccine-related volunteer or service projects. Submitted resources should describe projects or experiences that:
  • Describe a fully voluntary student service project
  • Are driven by the needs of the health system and/or medical school
  • Include a formal connection between medical students and faculty/administrators
  • When feasible, facilitate social distancing
Submissions may also include supplements such as: orientation and debriefing resources, logistical and operational materials (e.g., email announcements, sign-up sheets, checklists, etc.) or links to publicly accessible websites. These are intended to help others adopt or adapt these projects for local use.
All submissions will be reviewed by the collection editor, Geoffrey Young, PhD, Senior Director of Student Affairs and Programs, to ensure criteria for inclusion are met. If you have a student volunteer or service project you would like to submit to the collection but need additional support, please contact us at studentaffairs@aamc.org
