  10. OMSL Topics

  11. The IUSM Office of Medical Service Learning (OMSL) facilitates and serves as a resource for service learning for medical students on all nine IUSM campuses. OMSL also directly supports 17 service-learning projects in Indianapolis. • Medical Student Service-Learning Group (MSSG) is the IUPUI registered and student-led organization which works with the OMSL (student leaders are the same for both). • Main difference between OMSL Projects and SIGs: • SIGs’ service or development project is just one of their overall requirements. • OMSL Projects’ main focus is service-learning. OMSL and MSSG

  12. Director: Steve Kirchhoff, • Officers: • Co-chairs (2) • Kate Mayhew; • Ethan Morrical; • Jr. Co-Chairs (2) • MSSG Treasurer • Public Relations Coordinator(s) • Volunteer Service Coordinator(s) • Ad-hoc Committee Chairs • Project Leaders • Qualifications to be an officer: • Be an MS3 or MS4 student, though experienced MS2s will also receive consideration. • Have served as an OMSL project co-chair. • Be strongly committed to continuing to serve MSSG in a leadership role. • Be motivated to assist OMSL project co-chairs as a mentor. OMSL Leaders

  13. The project was initiated by a medical student. • The project fits well with the educational objectives for Competency VI (Social and Community Contexts of Health Care) or Competency IX (Professionalism and Role Recognition). • The project has excellent potential for community collaboration or organizational partnership. • There is an availability of committed student leadership as co-chairs. • The leadership time requirements for planning and pre-event activities are not greater than 40 hours per academic year. • Participant time requirement (except Spring Break) is not greater than 20 hours per academic calendar year. • The schedule for service/committee activities is not in conflict with scheduled academic responsibilities. • There is a high likelihood of identifying adequate funding sources. • There is excellent potential for project sustainability. Criteria for projects

  14. Funding supplied in the first semester of the school year, up to $750 to be used by the project leaders for the year. • Additional funding can be requested by applying to the OMSL Treasury Committee. • Project leaders are also free to pursue other sources of funding to meet the needs of the project. • Donations • IUPUI Student Organization Grants (SOG grants) • External grants • Project leaders are expected to budget for the year, based on past years and expected changes in expenses. • Steve Kirchhoff will use periodic income/expense statements to help leaders stay on budget. OMSL Funding

  15. The primary method of purchasing food and items is purchase orders and invoices. • Contact Carlene or Lisa for questions and additional information • If necessary, students can use the reimbursement process to cover any out-of-pocket expenses. • Contact Carlene or Lisa for questions and additional information. • The details of requesting an IUPUI SOG grant, using invoices and vendors, etc will be covered later in this presentation. OMSL Funding

  16. Level 3 in Competency VI - Social and Community Contexts of Health Care • By serving as a project co-chair and/or successfully completing the CLMP program, students meet one of two requirements. • The second requirement is to complete a reflection paper on your project leadership experience. • For more information, see the Competency Curriculum link under the Community Group on the Oncourse website.
