This Fall marks the beginning of an exciting new student run free clinic. UW Health Sciences students will be partnering with Harborview Medical Center (HMC) Downtown programs to provide urgent care services to residents of Low Income Housing Institute’s Tiny House Villages. Health sciences students will work on interprofessional teams to respond to community identified health needs while further developing their teamwork and clinical skills.
Volunteering with our programs is a wonderful way to practice your skills, make a difference in our community and form meaningful connections. We invite you to explore our opportunities for providers and students alike. We are very flexible and try to make it easy to work around busy schedules. There is no required hourly commitment. Simply sign up when you have the time!
Our Service Learning and Community Engagement programs strive to enrich health sciences education by providing our students with opportunities to hone their skills while addressing the health needs of our underserved communities. We seek to foster the joy of service in our students who are preparing for lives of civic and social responsibility in an increasingly diverse and complex global society.These goals could not be achieved without strong community partnerships, dedicated supervising providers, and mutual collaboration within our six health sciences schools.
Please take a moment to glance through the amazing clinical and mentoring projects that have been developed by our students over the past ten years.
