Each year, School of Medicine faculty, staff, and students provide hundreds of thousands of hours of service in hospitals, clinics, homeless shelters and schools throughout the state. Program involvement includes:
- Student volunteers are interviewed about Project Feast
S.T.O.P. AIDS Student/Teacher Outreach Program
Sends volunteer students into Baltimore City public schools to discuss HIV prevention. Thousands of West Baltimore elementary and middle school students have been taught about the disease’s medical and social implications.
Domestic Violence Workshop
Creates a heightened awareness of the complexity of domestic violence and teaches future physicians how to spot the sometimes-subtle signs of abuse.
Health Care and the Homeless Project
Allows students to spend time at shelters such as South Baltimore Station and provides health care screening and education.

Each year, students from the University of Maryland School of Medicine organize Project Feast to feed hundreds of Baltimore's homeless and needy families on Thanksgiving. The event draws volunteers from all of the schools on campus, as well as volunteers from the community, many of whom return every year.
