The Society of Student Run Free Clinics (SSRFC) now has active members all across the globe who have joined us in our vision to promote and support the existence of student-run clinics at every health science center.

What is a student-run free clinic?


A student-run free clinic is an institution that provides care at no cost to those in our society that may not otherwise be able to afford such services. These clinics are staffed by volunteers seeking opportunities to provide care to populations such as the uninsured and homeless while simultaneously enrich their education with real-life patient care.


The Society of Student Run Free Clinics (SSRFC) is an initiative started by students, though a progression of conferences focused on harnessing the passion of student run clinics across the nation.


The Society of Student-Run Free Clinics will develop a national interprofessional platform for student-run clinics through both an annual conference, website, and newsletter in order to increase communication to foster the sharing of ideas, to collaborate on research, to provide funding resources and to expand the existing scope of clinics as well as cultivate the growth of the new ones.


SSRFC aims to become a national, collective voice representing student-run, free clinics. Our vision is to promote and support the existence of student-run clinics at every health science center. Through our unified strength, we aim to advocate for both resources and health policy that benefits our patients, and to develop a national network to help sustain student-run, free clinics. We truly strive to be an interdisciplinary organization and welcome members from all aspects of healthcare including medical, osteopathic, dental, physical therapy, pharmacy, or any group that has a student run clinic.
