Ozanam Inn Weekend Clinic - New Orleans
Ozanam Inn – TUSOM Student-Run Free Health Clinic partners with the Ozanam Inn homeless shelter to improve access to health care for an under-served population in the Central Business District of New Orleans. Ozanam Inn provides free housing to a diverse and transient population that has minimal access to consistent care. This clinic brings a point-of-access to health care right to the people who need it most. Students work directly with an attending physician to coordinate care for their patients, either through screening for chronic disease, developing treatment regimens for acute conditions, or making a targeted referral. This clinic provides a flexible and dynamic atmosphere for students to hone their clinical skills and to confront social determinants of health that extend beyond a patient’s chief complaint.
