Series: Service Learning in the Disciplines Series
Eighth in AAHE’s Service-Learning in the Disciplines Series, this volume shows how service-learning is not only a strategy for preparing community-responsive and competent health physicians, but also for fostering citizenship and changing the relationship between communities and medical schools. This very useful book provides readers with a valuable source of information and inspiration to develop and expand service-learning across the continuum of medical education.
