Community Connect Service Program

Dell Medical School is committed to applying the skills and expertise of its faculty, staff, students, residents and fellows to address community service needs. In particular, the Community Connect service program focuses on targeted efforts to meet needs identified as priorities by individuals and community organizations, not by the medical school.

Planning for the pilot phase of this program is underway. As part of the pilot, organizers seek four to six community organizations interested in helping to test how the program should be structured to maximize its effectiveness and impact.

Selection Criteria

To qualify for Community Connect’s pilot phase, community organizations should:

  • Have needs with the potential to be met in whole or part by Dell Med expertise;
  • Be focused on improving health for those historically underserved by medicine or other systems; and
  • Have needs that, in being addressed, have potential to offer immediate and significant value to one or more communities.
