Welcome to the Student Run Free Clinic

The Student-Run Free Clinic (SRFC) is organized and staffed by students from Touro University California. A licensed clinician provides direct, on-site supervision. The SRFC was developed to foster a relationship between the city of Vallejo and Touro University by providing a valuable resource for low-income residents of Vallejo, completely free of charge. After meeting with local healthcare stakeholders, several barriers to healthcare access were identified. The most significant barriers include: a lack of after-hours care, insufficient medical insurance, inadequate transportation to healthcare facilities, cultural stigmas, a significant language barrier for Spanish-speakers and speakers of other languages, and poor health literacy. The SRFC has resolved to overcome these barriers to healthcare in Vallejo. Students benefit by practicing their clinical skills through increased patient contact, developing interprofessional leadership and teamwork skills, and gaining direct experience in dealing with the social, economic, and cultural challenges that impact healthcare. The SRFC offers both a dynamic learning environment for students and compassionate service to our local community.

Services

Student Run Free Clinic Services

SRFC strives to give back to the community by offering medical services such as the ones listed below.

Blood Pressure Check

High blood pressure is often called the “silent killer,” as it is the #1 risk factor for having a stroke according to the American Heart Association. It is also considered a risk for heart attacks.
The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it regularly checked. It is recommended that adults aged 18 and over should be screened for high blood pressure once at least every two years.

Screening Physical Exam

Yearly screening physical exams can detect problems associated with aging and lifestyle such as smoking and physical inactivity. Screening exams can include blood pressure monitoring, a heart and lung exam, risk factor assessment for various diseases, and much more.

Medication Review

We encourage you to bring all your current medications (including vitamins, prescription creams, sprays, etc.) so our student pharmacists can perform a personalized medication review.

Case Management

Our public health students are here to help you sort through information about diabetes, hypertension, high BMI, and cardiovascular disease.
We will pair you up with a case manager who will walk you through information on various chronic conditions and work with you to set personal goals for a healthier lifestyle.

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

Osteopathic medicine focuses on treating the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.
One of the treatment modalities of osteopathic medicine is Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness and/or injury. Using OMT, our osteopathic medical students will move your muscles and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance.
