Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed challenges for medical education and patient care, which were felt acutely in obstetrics due to the essential nature of pregnancy care. The mobilization of health professions students to participate in obstetric service-learning projects has allowed for continued learning and professional identify formation while also providing a motivated, available, and skilled volunteer cohort to staff important projects for obstetric patients.
