Service learning opportunities provide you with a chance to serve vulnerable local communities, while learning about social determinants of health in the process. There are over 26 community affairs programs recognized by the Medical Society (MedSoc). You can mentor youth, serve vulnerable populations in a clinical setting, help translate newcomer patient histories into English, among many opportunities.
You can also shadow physicians with the Inner City Health Associates (ICHA), a group of over 60 family physicians, internists and psychiatrists working in over 40 shelters and drop-in facilities across Toronto, ou dans les cliniques bilingues / français dans le cadre de l'initiative FrancoDoc.
