Social service 

The fundamental purpose of the social service requirement in medicine is to link the student with his real environment and give back to society, in the form of social action, what he received during his training.

It is a stage in which the interns must become aware of their educational level, reaffirm their knowledge, and more importantly, rethink the relationship between the doctor and health services, the community itself, and other members of the health team.
