Through interaction with vulnerable and largely ignored patient populations, TBSM invites students of all backgrounds to engage in a unique service-learning opportunity. Direct outreach and patient engagement empower students with agency and community leadership early-on in their medical education. Meeting patients in their environment provides students with insight into the issues faced by a medically underserved population. Furthermore, the student-patient relationships encouraged by TBSM humanizes and helps to breakdown common stereotypes and stigmas associated with the homeless and refugee populations.
In addition to expanding cultural competency, TBSM provides students with the opportunity to improve their medical acumen and ability to practice patient-centered, team-based medical care. Physicians, advanced care practitioners, and students from USF Morsani College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and the undergraduate campus collaborate in all of TBSM’s clinical programs, thus facilitating interprofessional teamwork.
