    I'm the current TOUCH Coordinator for my COM and I had a student ask me about an activity and whether it is considered TOUCH eligible. The activity is the student is volunteering from 1pm-5pm as a standardized patient for physicians who work at Gwinnett Medical Center to allow/help those physicians practice their ACLS certifications. I wanted to know if this would be considered eligible? Thank you

    These hours are eligible due to the basic principles that it is service to benefit the community, and does not serve the individual or the medical school of the student.
