HOPE clinic: a place to care

Minn Med. 2011 Nov;94(11):49-51.


The University of Minnesota Medical School and College of Pharmacy in Duluth worked with a local drop-in center in 2008 to start a free clinic. The HOPE (Health of People Everywhere) Clinic is a student-run, faculty-organized effort that offers students an opportunity to develop their clinical skills and learn how to work in interprofessional teams while providing needed care to people who are underserved or uninsured. This article describes how this initiative came about and the impact it is having on medical students.
