Volunteer providers at Student-Run Free Clinic make a lasting difference

July 17, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees

Individuals who helped the Student-Run Free Clinics find success over the past year.

Every Saturday morning and Wednesday afternoon, the U-M Student-Run Free Clinic opens its doors in Pinckney, Michigan to provide free primary care to uninsured individuals.

Completely run by U-M medical students with collaborations in the schools of Nursing, Pharmacy, and Dentistry, the clinic relies on Michigan Medicine care providers to volunteer as preceptors overseeing the clinical care of patients and the instruction of students.

As the 2017-2018 clinic medical student leadership team ends the year, it would like to thank all the physician and nursing volunteers! Without the generous donation of their time and dedication to excellent patient care, student instruction and community service, the UMSRFC would not be possible. All the volunteers truly lead by example and show what it is to be excellent, generous and caring health care providers!

Indeed, since September 2017, nearly 50 attending physicians, residents and nurses have volunteered their time to provide service for more than 650 patient visits and instruct more than 600 student encounters.

More information and a complete list recognizing these providers, led by UMSRFC Medical Director Hari Conjeevaram, M.D., Women’s Health Coordinator Carrie Bell, M.D., and Wednesday clinical leader Megan Eagle, F.N.P., can be found on the UMSRFC website.
