Student-managed free clinic begins seeing pediatric patients
The Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured, a joint venture of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Columbia St. Mary’s, has expanded its services to include pediatric patients.
The Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured was founded by medical students from the Medical College in 1991 and provides free primary medical care to nearly 1,000 uninsured patients every year. The clinic is located at the Columbia St. Mary’s Family Health Center in Milwaukee. Volunteer physicians and medical students staff the clinic.
The Saturday Clinic provides medical students with unique, hands-on learning experiences under supervision.
“Our families have been asking us to provide pediatric services, and we’re glad to be able now to offer that,” said Jennifer Gomulka, Class of 2015 at the Medical College of Wisconsin and a member of the free clinic’s board. “It is our hope we can expand the number of appointments available; we are recruiting any pediatricians who would like to volunteer their time and expertise to make that happen.”
Alumni physicians, including pediatricians, interested in volunteering at the clinic can contact Jennifer Gomulka at firstname.lastname@example.org.
