Responding to a natural disaster with service learning.


This article describes a service learning experience at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. Responding to a nearby natural disaster, the curriculum was modified to allow 71 second-year medical students to provide needed aid to affected communities and also fulfill learning objectives important to their training. The description and the lessons learned provide an example of how service learning experiences can be implemented to enrich a curriculum.
