Abstract

Objective: To assess the relevant outcomes of a required service-learning experience in a didactic course. Design: In 2005, a course assignment was developed to introduce students to values reflected in the Creighton University mission and the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions' Ability Based Outcomes. Third-year pharmacy students were required to select a service activity, respond to reflection questions, and participate in both online and classroom discussions. Assessment: After service activity participation, students reflected on how the service affected them personally and what skills they developed because of their experiences. During the large group classroom discussion, students were invited to reflect upon the Ignatian values and their future roles in the practice of pharmacy. Conclusions: The service activities provided opportunities for students to interact with persons of diverse cultures and socioeconomic status, similar to potential future patient populations. Although 73% of the students participated in non-health-related endeavors, most were able to associate their experience with professional growth.
