Pride Bite: NSU Medical School Ranks First in Community Outreach

NSU prides itself on being an educational institution that provides continuing community outreach locally, nationally, and internationally via clinical programs and research, as does the College of Osteopathic Medicine (NSU-COM), which has been a community outreach exemplar since its inception.

Proof of this fact was evidenced in September when NSU-COM claimed the top spot in the university’s Fiscal Year 2014 Community Collaboration Database, which serves as a compilation of the community outreach endeavors conducted annually by NSU’s 18 colleges, schools, and centers. “Thanks to the diligent efforts of our faculty, staff, and administration, NSU-COM partnerships, collaborations, and community engagement are well-represented in the database,” said Anthony J. Silvagni, NSU-COM dean, in regard to the 608 approved projects submitted by the college. “Once again, our college leads the way in service to our community.”

Each year, NSU completes an assessment of community collaborations and shares the results with leadership, academic, and administrative/support units in order to improve the quality of its service in the community. The database keeps university leadership, as well as the Carnegie Foundation, informed about the many presentations and projects that occur throughout the year.
