Service Learning and Community Engagement

At the Anne Burnett Marion School of Medicine at Texas Christian University, our goal is clear: to equip future physicians with the tools and mindset necessary to serve their communities with compassion and social responsibility. Our commitment lies in seamlessly integrating service learning and community engagement throughout medical education.

Through meaningful partnerships with a range of communities, we strive to impart in our students a deep comprehension of the social factors influencing health and the imperative of tackling healthcare disparities head-on. By immersing students in hands-on experiences and fostering collaboration with local organizations, we aim to cultivate physicians who not only possess exceptional medical knowledge and skills but also actively engage in advancing social justice.

Our mission is to graduate empathetic, culturally sensitive, and socially conscious medical professionals who are dedicated to enhancing health outcomes and advocating for equitable healthcare access. We believe in shaping practitioners who not only excel in their clinical abilities but also actively contribute to the well-being of the diverse populations they serve.
