Indianapolis Student Outreach Clinic

The IU Student Outreach Clinic (SOC) is a free, student-run clinic providing primary care-based nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, social work, and legal services for the uninsured and underserved in the Indianapolis community. The SOC is one of the largest comprehensive student-run, free clinics in the United States. The overall goal of the clinic is to provide an array of services to close the healthcare gap in the local community. The clinic meets the widespread calls for team-based, patient-centered care. Learners perform comprehensive medical exams, coordinate medications, provide patient education, identify in-home exercises, and initiate conversations for those needing community resources.

The presence of IU IPE fosters collaboration among learners and provides first-hand evidence of interprofessional behaviors influencing patient satisfaction and health outcomes at the SOC. The experiential learning environment requires learners to use the knowledge of their own role and those of other professions to appropriately assess and address the healthcare needs of patients and populations.

IU IPE is proud to work with students, faculty, patients, and community leaders at the Indianapolis SOC to provide these services for the uninsured and underserved in the greater Indianapolis area.

The Indiana University Student Outreach Clinic is held every Saturday, throughout the year, at the Neighborhood Fellowship Church, 3102 E. 10th St., Indianapolis, IN 46201
