Established in 1993 the MUSC GIVES BACK student volunteer program proposes to increase the value of students' education earned at the Medical University of South Carolina by promoting and encouraging community volunteer experiences that allow them to observe and address actual health care problems in the community they will ultimately serve.
On a regular basis, students participate in community health fairs, serve weekly in local clinics for the underserved, and teach healthy life habits to school age children. Other student sponsored events, such as collecting food, clothing, and personal toiletry items for homeless and migrant populations address social concerns in the community.
Many future health professonals serve as positive role models to disadvantaged youth through tutoring and mentoring activities.
