About the Interprofessional Community Clinic
The Interprofessional Community Clinic (ICC) provides free, quality healthcare for uninsured adults in our community. We welcome patients in a respectful environment, where students and health professionals work together to provide care for community members. The clinic is a unique and valuable clinical opportunity for RFU students, and a necessary provider for our neighbors who may not otherwise have access to care.
For our patients
We provide primary care services for basic acute illness, vaccinations, and chronic-care issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease. Patients are seen by an interprofessional student team made up of medical, physician assistant, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, or podiatry students, and treated by a supervising healthcare provider. During your visit, we can help design a health plan for you, as well as schedule appointments for additional needs you may have, including podiatry, behavioral health, and physical therapy. We can also provide referrals to nearby free clinics for diagnostic testing and other supportive services.
- Appointments by request
- No insurance necessary
We offer Spanish to English interpretation services for our Spanish-speaking patients to communicate with their providers in the language they are comfortable using.
Location & Hours
The ICC is located in the Rosalind Franklin University Health Clinics, not far from the university campus in North Chicago. The clinic is open Thursdays from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. Evening hours make it possible for our patients to see several healthcare providers in one visit, and also makes it easier for patients who may not have the time off from work, transportation, or child care during the day.

FOR OUR STUDENTS
Volunteering in the clinic is a welcome complement to our students’ classroom work. It also helps students relate to their ultimate goal of being a healthcare provider during the didactic years of their program of study. Students can participate at the clinic, join the student organization, the Interprofessional Clinic Initiative (ICI) that facilitates the operation of the clinic, or do both. For more information about the ICC’s unique model of service, clinical practice, and student initiative, contact the Interprofessional Clinic Initiative at email@example.com.
HISTORY OF THE CLINIC
Founded in 2013 by students from the Chicago Medical School, the ICC now has students from the various degree programs (allopathic medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, podiatric medicine, and psychology) working together in interprofessional teams to provide accessible, quality healthcare to non-insured residents of the surrounding communities.
