Clinics are held at UNR Med’s Family Medicine Center, located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus just north of Mackay Stadium off of North Virginia Street. Take RTC bus route 7 to North Virginia Street or the Sierra Spirit bus.

UNR Med offers the monthly clinics as a way to give back to the community and prepare medical students as future physicians. Licensed faculty and community physicians supervise the medical students and the care patients receive.

The Student Outreach Clinic is made possible by the support of the Nell J. Redfield Foundation and Patricia D. Cafferata in memory of Dr. H. Treat Cafferata.
