Case-based learning for high school students: a service-learning activity
- Author(s): Fuentes, Andrea
- et al.
Doc 4 A Day (D4AD) is a unique elective activity currently offered at the UCSD School of Medicine where medical students get the opportunity to engage with and teach high school students from underserved areas of San Diego. The goals of this activity are two-fold: (1) be a “service-learning” activity for medical students and (2) to encourage and peak the interest of high school students in clinical and biological sciences, who otherwise may never be provided with information about pursing a career in medicine.
