GAP YEAR? HOW ABOUT CITY YEAR?

For graduates considering a career in medicine or public health, City Year provides a unique and valuable perspective. During this gap year experience, AmeriCorps Members must be compassionate and empathetic, forging personal relationships with students and their families on a daily basis. They must be hardworking and persistent amidst seemingly insurmountable obstacles, constantly honing the skills that will one day turn them into both competent and caring physicians. They will witness first-hand the impact a lack of access to high quality health care can have on an individual, a community, and society at large. City Year alumni working in the medical field say City Year shaped their pathway and provided a solid foundation for their medical careers.
