UT Health San Antonio’s Student Faculty Collaborative Practice (aka Student-Run Free Clinic Program) is a collaborative effort between learners and faculty from UT Health San Antonio working in partnership with several community partners.
These partners include Alpha Home, Haven for Hope, Alamo Area Resource Center (AARC), St. Francis Episcopal Church, Travis Park Methodist Church and San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries (SAMM).
Learners include students from the schools of medicine, nursing, dentistry, dental hygiene, physical therapy, physician assistant, and medical residents of various specialties. Health science students & residents gain vital experience in primary care, public health, community service, and health care administration while serving others.
The clinics serve as a unique interdisciplinary educational setting where students learn from their peers, mentors and their patients. The care provided to these vulnerable communities is greatly needed and warmly appreciated. Clinics occur in the evenings, weekly or biweekly as following:
- Alpha Home: serves women facing addiction every Monday and Wednesday
- SAMM Transitional Living and Learning Center: serves families of mothers and children rebuilding from homelessness every Wednesday
- San Antonio Refugee Health Center: serves refugees and migrants in our community every Wednesday
- Haven for Hope: serves Dermatology needs of the homeless every other Thursday
- PRIDE: serves LGBTQ+ community every other Wednesday
- Travis Park: serves Dermatology needs of the homeless every other Tuesday
Volunteer Students can sign up for upcoming clinic dates & times, under the Clinic Calendars link on each clinic’s page.
Thank you for volunteering your time and effort to care for the vulnerable in our community!
