A model of service, clinical practice & student initiative.

Started by a few Chicago Medical School students in 2013, the Interprofessional Community Clinic (ICC) is a unique and impactful clinical opportunity for RFU students, as well as a force in the community for ensuring a healthier population—especially for the underserved.

The clinic operates every Thursday evening seeing patients from 4-8PM in the facilities of the Health Clinics at Rosalind Franklin. ICC, in partnership with the community, provides accessible, quality healthcare for the underserved and underinsured of Lake County. Our mission is to foster a respectful environment in which students, health professionals, patients, and community members learn from one another by working together interprofessionally.

The evening hours of the clinic allow patients to see multiple different providers in one visit allowing for a more favorable time for those who lack paid time off from work, transportation, or child care. For students, the clinic serves as a balance point for the long hours of study and helps connect students to their end goal of being a provider while amidst the didactic years of learning process.

An entity of the Rosalind Franklin University Health Clinics (RFUHC), the ICC incorporates students from all health professional training programs at RFU to create a team-based clinic setting that is truly interprofessional. Students can volunteer at the clinic, join the student organization that facilitates the operation of the clinic, or do both.
