Many kinds of experienced healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists help Clínica Esperanza provide care.
J-1 Waiver Doctors are also popular health care providers at our clinic, and are especially coveted if they share heritage with our patients.
Medical Students have the unique opportunity to volunteer through our Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University clinic, a faculty-supervised center based at Clínica Esperanza. There, pairs of junior medical students (one first year student, and one second year student) learn to provide quality primary care, build longitudinal relationships with patients, and deepen their skills in cultural and linguistic competence.
The clinic has proved beneficial for both the community and medical students. It’s a win-win: while students learn about caring for underserved patients, patients receive high-quality care from engaged student-doctors who want to make a difference in the community.
The clinic operates two nights per month, and new students enlist each year. Over 100 patients receive care!
