New students at Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine participated in a day of service as part of their orientation program.

Before beginning their rigorous course of study, first-year medical students at Midwestern University participate in an annual day of service. This year, 206 new students at the University's Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine (CCOM) led camp activities, cleared brush, raised awareness, and more as part of their orientation program. The students completed the following projects:

Participation in service projects gives students first-hand experience with the needs of the community they will one day serve as health professionals. The projects also reflect a University-wide commitment to community service. As a testament to Midwestern University's commitment to community service, the University has earned a spot on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the last several years. This award is the highest federal recognition a college or university can achieve for its commitment to service and civic engagement.
