Description of Agency/Activities: Walker’s Point Community Clinic (formally Madison Street Outreach Clinic) was created to provide access to health care to persons who are unable to obtain health care due to barriers including lack of health insurance, low income, language and cultural obstacles, and geographical distances. Services at the Walker’s Point Community Clinic strive to provide cost effective and easily accessible health care to families and individuals whose only other alternative would be emergency rooms or not obtaining care at all.
Student Role at Agency:
The primary role of students will be to serve as intake assistants for patients, helping at the front desk reception area, making phone calls (in Spanish) to remind patients of appointments, and some clerical work. Students may have an opportunity to shadow staff members. Spanish skills will be assessed before service begins at clinic to ensure a proper fit for both the Service Learner and Walker’s Point.
*Nursing Students and Certified Nursing Assistants who are familiar with EPIC may be able to take vitals during busy hours. Proof of CNA licensure or a note from the College of Nursing is necessary.
