Medical School, School of Nursing partner to expand care at student-run free clinic
The schools will use a new grant to improve interprofessional education and increase care for a local community
University of Michigan School of Nursing students and faculty will join Medical School faculty and medical students currently operating the Student-Run Free Clinic (SRFC) in Pinckney, Mich., on an interprofessional initiative in which graduate nursing students and students from other health professions will work together in community-based clinical settings.
Established in 2012, the SRFC offers free care every Saturday afternoon to uninsured and underserved residents of rural Livingston County and surrounding areas. The medical students, nurse practitioner students, nurse practitioners and physicians will work together to provide care, learning in the process how to become collaborative, efficient teams.
