The Weill Cornell Community Clinic (WCCC) is a student-led initiative that addresses the need for accessible and equitable healthcare for uninsured New York City residents, while enhancing the philanthropic spirit of students and faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College. Volunteer positions are available for students to practice medical history documentation and physical examination under the direct supervision of an upperclassman and an attending physician.
The WCCC provides medical students with an excellent introduction to socioeconomic issues confronting the uninsured through its comprehensive care model. In addition to medical consultation, patients are offered on-site social work services, Medicaid screening interviews, no-charge laboratory services and medications, and discounted referrals for specialty services.
The WCCC is open for operation on Mondays from 5-8 p.m. At the beginning of their first year, students are able to apply for WCCC leadership positions.
