Community Engagement & Service Opportunities

UTSW Medical School Community Involvement
UT Southwestern medical students volunteer in clinics around Dallas to gain professional experience and to help the community.

Volunteers make a difference at UT Southwestern Medical Center

Volunteering can help students bridge the knowledge they receive in the classroom with hands-on experiences. There are many positive aspects to being a volunteer, especially feeling good about making a difference.

  • A feeling of satisfaction and increased self-esteem
  • Improved communication skills
  • Openness to people different from yourself
  • Openness to new experiences
  • Personal power
  • Valuable experiences related to your chosen career

Students who volunteer gain valuable skills, make new friends, and are more marketable to employers. There are numerous ways for students to get connected and be involved in community service, service learning, and civic engagement.
