The Ignatian Service Immersion (ISI) program began in 1993 with Loyola University Ministry staff and three medical students. The core values of ISI are simplicity, solidarity, spirituality, service and social justice. Students, faculty, and staff of the health professions are sponsored by long-standing partner organizations. Participants engage in shared learning around social determinants of health, health disparities, and access to health care. Situated within a Catholic, Jesuit University, the ISI program extends beyond the common parameters of a global health immersion experience to unite the personal and the professional through engagement in extensive preparation, reflection, and thorough evaluation.
2018 destinations include: Maywood, Illinois; Belize City, Belize; Tucson, Arizona; Harlingen, Texas; Santiago, Dominican Republic; Corozal Town, Belize; Palacios, Bolivia; Nuevo Horizonte, Guatemala; Kenscoff, Haiti; Holon, Israel; Quito, Ecuador.
SCOPE and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine will donate the proceeds raised from the Art of Pathology Auction to ISI in support of first year medical students whom are taking part in this program.
Thank you for your ongoing support of this formative program!
