“I’m learning hands-on from a population that requires health care services more than anyone I’ve worked with before,” Craig Lindell DPT ’17 says. Lindell is one of seven USC doctor of physical therapy students taking part in a new service-learning experience in partnership with students from the University of California–Los Angeles. The group of medical, public health, undergraduate and physical therapy students take to the streets of West Hollywood twice a month, providing treatment and health referrals to homeless and indigent populations. Not only does the mobile clinic give students real-world experience, it also helps code community service into their professional DNA. “I’ve witnessed and been part of providing individuals hope, and I think that is the strongest power I want to share with every community,” Lindell says.
