SEAHEC and the University of Arizona have come together once again to provide a hands-on community learning experience for health professions students. On Saturday August 17th students and faculty met in Tucson to wrap up the seven-week pilot course, Migration Inter-professional Leading to Action and Growth (MILAGRO.) The meeting featured student project presentations and a final reflection on what they had learned.

The recent publication, entitled "Impact of a Short-Term Domestic Service-Learning Program on Medical Student Education," is an examination of journals students used to document their learning experiences during the annual spring trip to Nogales. According to the study, the role of short-term, domestic community learning experiences can be an important component of a student's medical education, since it lowers financial and logistical barriers to acquiring first-hand community service experience that can impact students' perspectives, cultural competence and career choices.
