Our Patients

The patient population is predominately low-income and underinsured/uninsured: the working poor. You will be exposed to problems common and unique to underserved populations and you will provide primary care to these individuals. Because of their poor access to care, you will encounter very ill patients with long neglected medical needs. You will be guided carefully through an abundance of organic and social pathology and you will have ample opportunity to practice those skills that you need to become an outstanding physician.
