The Robert R. Frank Student Run Free Clinic (SRFC) is a Wayne State University School of Medicine student-run free clinic that is operating in collaboration with Mercy Primary Community Care Center (MPCC). Wayne State University School of Medicine continues to uphold its commitment to the community as this is the state’s first student run free clinic
MPCC is a free clinic that currently provides care to 50,000 uninsured patients in Detroit; however, there are over 250,000 uninsured residents in the city. This partnership will increase health care access to the uninsured population of Detroit. SRFC’s scope of services will be primary and preventative care, health education and awareness, social work/counseling, prescribed medications and minimal laboratory testing. Most volunteers of SRFC will be Wayne State University School of Medicine medical student volunteers with licensed physician oversight at all times.
The Robert R. Frank Free Clinic aims to offer an additional high quality, non-emergent, primary care resource to the medically uninsured in the City of Detroit and to provide an opportunity for medical students to gain experience in cultural, competent medicine in an atmosphere of mutual respect and dignity.
