    I haven't heard of such a rule, but I want to make sure that there is not a cap for TOUCH points for students who completed service trips abroad? As far as I know, the only stipulation is the student can only receive points for patient-contact hours in the clinic. Thanks for the help!

    There is no maximum cap on TOUCH hours earned for any activity or type of activity.

    Also, like you had stated with service trips in particular, the only eligible hours are time spent in service. Time spent traveling, sleeping, eating or other recreational activities not related to providing a service are not eligible.
