The University of Nevada School of Medicine's Student Outreach Clinic date for December has been announced for December 11 from 8 a.m. to noon. This is a general clinic serving adults and children and is the only clinic scheduled for this month due to the holidays.
Student Outreach Clinics are a free service providing much needed care for Washoe County's medically uninsured population. Clinics offer physicals for work or school, EKGs, blood pressure monitoring, referrals and selected lab services at discounted fees.
Under the direct supervision of licensed faculty and community physicians, medical students from the University of Nevada School of Medicine offer monthly Student Outreach Clinics which provide free care. No appointment is necessary for clinic patients who are seen on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended. Spanish translators are available as needed.
Clinics are held at University Health System's Family Medicine Center, located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus just north of Mackay Stadium off of North Virginia Street. Take RTC bus route 7 to North Virginia Street or the free Sierra Spirit bus.
