    I was wondering if anyone knows how many student-run clinics are available for volunteering at UCSD SOM? Could you also list the communities that they target, i.e. for Asians, African-American, Latino, etc?

    Thanks

    there are 3 student run clinics by UCSD. We do not attempt to target a specific community inasmuch as we attempt to provide care to those who cannot afford conventional medical insurance. This includes homeless and working poor, and we see any and every ethnic group within those categories. There does tend to be different populations of patients visiting each clinic based on its location, however.
