Davis Community Clinic is run by a private, nonprofit agency that provides primary health care to low-income, uninsured and Medi-Cal residents of the Yolo region. The majority of doctors, dentists, translators, lab assistants and patient assistants are volunteers.

UC Davis School of Medicine 2nd year medical students also volunteer their time in the clinic as part of their medical school training. Volunteers are chose by lottery at the end of the first year. Ten UC Davis medical students serve the clinic every week for an entire year (including exam weeks and vacations), allowing for a unique experience in continuity of care and long term patient-doctor relationships. In addition, four alternates are chosen. Medical students interview the patients, perform necessary physical exams, and order laboratory tests under the supervision of volunteer attending physicians.
