Program Description:
Each day, students are divided into groups of 3-5, with each group managing a Clinic “Station” (See STATIONS DESCRIPTION below for more information).  Groups are divided so that students have a chance to participate in each of the stations over the course of the week.The clinic will typically operate from 9am to 3-5pm (30 minute break at noon for lunch).  The number of patients seen each day can range from 50 to over 200.  Patients may be seen by a primary care doctor, a dentist, and/or a gynecologist, and we offer medication from our pharmacy free of charge.  MEDLIFE staff and nurses are on hand during the clinic to note any patients that may require follow-up care after the Mobile Clinic week ends.  Bilingual participants and/or MEDLIFE staff will function as translators as needed.  Following the final patient visit, MEDLIFE will sometimes provide a local speaker from the community (community leader, local doctor, former MEDLIFE patient, etc.) to meet and talk with the group.
