Compassionate Care in Medicine Club
Established in Spring 2013, the Compassionate Care in Medicine Club (CCIM) is an undergraduate organization at Notre Dame to help students become caring medical professionals. CCIM strives to educate its members on the compassionate, spiritual, and emotional side of medicine. The group is an extension of the Pathos Project Undergraduate Program (PPUP) and works with the Hillebrand Center to bring doctors, nurses, therapists, caregivers, and other health professionals to campus to speak about compassionate care.
