The Role of Undergraduates in Imani Clinic


Imani Clinic prides itself as being one of the few bona fide student-run clinics in the nation. Undergraduates form the working backbone of Imani and have much to gain from volunteering. In addition to being a worthwhile hands-on clinical experience for students interested in the healthcare field, Imani Clinic is an invaluable opportunity for undergraduates to directly participate in the delivery of episodic primary care to the underserved and multicultural population of Oak Park.
