The Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) and the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service are pleased to announce that we are accepting recommendations and applications for the Honos Civicus Society Class of 2016 at TUSM. Honos Civicus, Latin for “Civic Honors,” celebrates and publicly recognizes graduating fourth year students who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to community service and civic engagement during their studies at the Tufts University School of Medicine. Honos Civicus provides an opportunity to celebrate and reflect upon TUSM’s community involvement while creating an alumni network of health professionals who are excited to continue their commitment to active citizenship throughout their careers.
We invite M16 students interested in Honos Civicus to apply. We also invite students, faculty, staff, and community partners to recommend deserving members of the Tufts University School of Medicine Class of 2016 for consideration for the Honos Civicus Society. Students do not need to be recommended in order to apply, but they must apply in order to be considered.
Students will be ineligible if they have more than one interim failure of a preclinical course or any permanent failures in any course.
The benefits of membership in the Honos Civicus Society include:
Applications will be reviewed by the Honos Civicus Subcommittee of the Community Service Learning Steering Committee, which includes representatives from Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, faculty members from the School of Medicine, and representatives from both TUSM’s Office of Student Affairs and Office of Educational Affairs.
