Abstract

The Student-Run Clinic Association (SRCA) is a pan-Canadian effort to develop new student-run clinics and scale the operation of existing clinics. Student-run clinics utilize a multidisciplinary team of health professional students to provide accessible primary care services to vulnerable and marginalized populations under the supervision of qualified and licensed healthcare providers. The SRCA plays an integral role in building the infrastructure necessary for student-run clinics to be sustainable and scalable across the country. The outcome of our initiative is to enhance equitable, high-quality care to underserved populations in Canada, while simultaneously providing future healthcare providers with experience serving this population.
