Student Run Free Clinic

Named the 2020 Free Clinic of the Year by the Charitable Healthcare Network.

Student-Run Free Clinic

The Student-Run Free Clinic is run by medical and pharmacy students of Northeast Ohio Medical University who are dedicated to providing high quality, non-emergent, no-cost health care to the medically underserved residents of Northeast Ohio.

Student volunteers have been the foundation of the Student-Run Free Clinic since 2012 when OutReach, a student organization, was established on the campus of Northeast Ohio Medical University.

Student leaders in the interest group lead the collaboration and planning efforts which included engaging an interprofessional team of students, establishing faculty champions, assessing community needs and formalizing the Student-Run Free Clinic concept.

A business plan ― complete with funding and legal requirements, operational needs, a volunteer recruitment plan, and a timeline ― was executed.

And in 2016, the SOAR (Student Outreach to the Area Residents) Student-Run Free Clinic held its grand opening.

Operating as a NEOMED Clinical Initiative, the free clinic has been re-branded as Student-Run Free Clinic at NEOMED, effective January 2021.
