Abstract

By definition, free clinics exist to provide medical care without consideration of the patient’s ability to pay. Given this broad definition, this study aims to contrast two models of free clinics: federally qualified health center (FQHC) and student-run clinic (SRC). To my knowledge, there has not been a study that juxtaposes operations of different free clinics solely for the purpose of describing their similarities and differences
