International Outreach provides a comprehensive program to serve the health care needs of communities in the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, and Honduras. Students develop cultural sensitivity and skills to address significant health challenges that span borders and continents working with VCOM faculty in these regions.
Rural and Community Outreach
Medical students at VCOM enhance their skills in providing patient-centered medicine through medical outreach activities in the Appalachian region. From the time they begin their medical education, VCOM students are actively involved in the local area health fairs, free clinics, community education, and other service-based learning opportunities to engage with the community, all while receiving instruction from experienced faculty and staff.
