UNC School of Medicine students have a special connection to the state of North Carolina because of the public service mission of the institution. While clinical week is a traditional part of medical education everywhere, it is particularly special at UNC, giving students an opportunity to interact with the communities they may serve after they complete their education. In some cases it even takes them to their home communities. Last month's clinical week for MS1s was captured via the UNC SOM Facebook page. Please take a moment to view this visual recap of where our students went and what they had to say. And if you haven't already done so, "Like" the UNC School of Medicine on Facebook.
