Making a Difference: The Free Clinic Extraordinary Volunteers
September 1, 2017
“The Free Clinic is essential to describe what my experience in medical school has
been like so far. While it’s a great resource for the Lubbock community, it also is
a great resource for students that want to learn and practice medicine every week.
I have practiced taking a history and physical, learned basic medicines and labs and
continually improve how I present patients to upper-level students and physicians.
Most importantly, I have gained a better understanding of the Lubbock community and
what challenges low-income patients face. I am excited to continue volunteering at
The Free Clinic and help improve peoples’ health and well-being.”

Texas Tech Physicians
Texas Tech Physicians is a physician group and part of the School of Medicine and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.
Clinics are located in Amarillo, El Paso, Lubbock and the Permian Basin, encompassing
108 counties of Texas and New Mexico comprising 103,000 square miles with a population
of 2.6 million people.
Receiving care in a medical school setting is unique – many Texas Tech Physicians
are also teachers. They must remain up-to-date in new treatments and diagnostics,
not only to care for their patients, but also to pass on that knowledge to resident
physicians, physicians studying in fellowships and medical students.
