Student reflections on community service, iCHEE Program

iCHEE  is OHSU’s first community-based, interdisciplinary educational program, and the first program aimed at refugees the world over. The goal is to adapt the course to the needs of newly arriving refugee and other underserved groups, and incorporate these opportunities for education and contribution into the optional hands-on experiences that cap the Global Health in Changing Environments course.

Read the reflections below by OHSU students who have blogged about their experience helping the underserved through the OHSU iCHEE Program. If you have questions about the program, please contact Valerie Palmer at the OHSU Global Health Center.

Ever wondered what life is like as a student at OHSU? What does it take to become a researcher? Just how gross is gross anatomy? Welcome to the blog that answers these – and many other – questions. It’s students writing first-hand about their commitment to careers in science and health care. It’s honest about the challenges as well as the joys. It’s not always pretty. But it is our story. Thank you for sharing it with us. And please, let us know what you think.
