Monica Rose Arebalos, Faun Lee Botor, Edward Simanton, and Jennifer Young (all Medicine) recently published "Required Longitudinal Service-Learning and Its Effects on Medical Students' Attitudes Toward the Underserved" in the Medical Science Educator Journal.  Although medical students enter medicine with altruistic motives and seek to serve indigent populations, studies show that medical students’ attitudes towards the undeserved tend to worsen significantly as they go through their medical education. This finding emphasizes the need for medical educators to implement activities such as service-learning that may help mitigate this negative trend.
