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
