INSIDE LOOK: RUSM Students and the USNS Comfort Medical Mission

January 13, 2016

 RUSM students on Comfort mission

In July 2015, the US Navy visited Dominica for an important medical mission, and many of our students were able to volunteer and help with this far-reaching humanitarian initiative. They shadowed Navy physicians, observed surgeries close up, and more—some even learned how to do medical procedures during their time alongside Navy doctors. It was all part of the USNS Comfort medical mission: something many students called a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get some valuable clinical experience early in their medical careers.

Get an inside look at this unique student experience with our new Comfort microsite. Read student stories, learn about the mission, and find out what it was like for the students to really get a firsthand look at how medicine is practiced on a global scale.
