La Clinica Latina is a free clinic
run designed to provide healthcare services to uninsured or underinsured
Spanish-speaking patients in our community.
The clinic is run completely by medical students who work with volunteer
physicians to see and treat patients each week. La Clinica Latina not only
helps to bridge the language, cultural, and economic disparities that many of
our patients face, but it also helps medical students grow in their clinical
skills, learn from volunteering physicians, and continue to utilize their
Spanish skills. Students are encouraged to
help out with la Clinica Latina throughout all four years of medical school and
must be fluent in Spanish.
