The Medical Outreach Clinic of McLaren Macomb Hospital, first established in 1995, provides much-needed medical services to underserved and uninsured patients in the area.
Last month, with support from the College of Osteopathic Medicine and other partners, the “doctor’s office on wheels” got an upgrade in the form of a new, more spacious RV. Now 10 feet larger, the new mobile clinic has space for more treatment rooms as well as a counseling area.
The ability to serve more patients is undoubtedly good for the community. It’s also a welcome development for College of Osteopathic Medicine students and faculty, who can volunteer their time at the clinic. Not only does this work provide college faculty and emerging clinicians with the chance to give back, but it also presents opportunities to practice clinical skills and participate in community-based research.
