Program Description

In addition to providing healthcare to the uninsured community in our area, we have a teen medical internship program. Each year, about 100 students volunteer to take care of patients while, at the same time, these students are learning about careers in healthcare. Each year, about half of our students are low-income, first generation, bi-lingual Spanish speakers who make a two or three year commitment to volunteer with us. As they make a significant contribution to our clinic, we offer them career and college guidance including how to select colleges, how to pay for college, college essay and application assistance, etc. As the founder of the college advising program at clinic, I work with at least 50 students each year who otherwise may not even consider college as an option.
