Ignatian Service Immersion Elective

The goal of this rotation is to place late M3 students in an international clinical and teaching setting that is both supervised and longitudinal.

ISI teams consist of first-year (M1) students, faculty physicians and chaplains.

Adding M3 students to the ISI teams offers opportunities for cross-class teaching before trips occur and in the clinical setting. 

Evaluation Method

Supervision and evaluation of field experience is by ISI faculty physicians and the preparation and teaching is under the direction of the Center for Community and Global Health. 

Students are evaluated by the ISI team physician and by the CCGH Director on the performance in the preparation components as well as final elective requirements.


 This elective is limited to M3 students in the Community and Global Health Honors program.

The number of spaces available for this elective varies from year to year. If student interest is higher than the number of spaces available, there will be an interview in addition to the application process.  


Applicants should complete the Center for Community and Global Health application form found in myLUMEN under “Elective Registration.”
