“Before medical school, I knew I wanted to provide care for the less fortunate. The
Free Clinic was one of the main reasons I chose the TTUHSC School of Medicine over
other medical schools. I researched it before confirming my acceptance knowing it
was something I wanted to do.
I love the independence in being able to see your own patient from start to finish, come up with your own plan, and see the patient out knowing you have positively impacted their health. The learning experience from students older than you who have been through what you are going through is truly invaluable.”
