The Department of Community Service (DOCS) is a student run, non-profit organization endorsed by the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine’s (UMMSM) administration. Through DOCS, UMMSM students and physicians provide quality healthcare to the underserved populations in South Florida. In 2014, DOCS partnered with UM’s School of Communication, and with generous support from the Mitchell Wolfson, Sr. Foundation, to develop an online decision support tool to connect like-minded students, faculty and deans at medical schools nationwide with the program. The website’s goal is to engage interested schools in coordinating, improving, and expanding existing community service projects or establishing new health fairs or student-directed clinics.
I served as the creative director and project manager for this web project, coordinating with a diverse set of stakeholders and contributors including faculty, staff, and students at both the Miller School of Medicine and the School of Communication.
The site is currently available at: docs.com.miami.edu
Thank you to all those who helped make it possible!
