The Community Health Clerkship is an applied learning experience (required course clerkship for 4th year medical students) designed to develop in Brown University medical students the knowledge, skills and perspectives of community health necessary to become a complete, competent physician. The clerkship fosters an informed sense of social responsibility and develop the skills needed to become strong patient advocates and community leaders. For the past few years, The MET School in Providence has served as a field experience placement. Past project topics include sexual harassment in schools, HIV/AIDS prevention, and school-based preventative health.
