This preclinical elective course involves monthly student-led seminars focused on medical care of vulnerable populations and clinical experience as a student provider at Brown Student Community Clinic in the Rhode Island Free Clinic. The course aims to provide students with the knowledge, skill and support needed for medical care of underserved populations and to enable them the opportunity to practice these new-found skills in a clinical setting that services an underserved population. The intent of the course is to create future leaders in primary care and care of underserved populations.
