Frequently Asked Questions

Student Outreach Clinic

Student volunteers at the Student Outreach Clinic.
Where is the Student Outreach Clinic Located?

All clinics are held at the Family Medicine Center on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. It is located at the corner of 17th St and East Stadium Way, directly northeast of the football stadium on the north side of the university campus.

Can I Make an Appointment or Do I Just Walk In?

Patients are seen on a first-come, first serve basis. Appointments are made at the discretion of clinic management and only for follow-up services. If an appointment is warranted you will be notified and management will contact you to schedule.

How Long is the Wait to be Seen?

As we see patients on a first-come, first-serve basis, the wait varies depending on patient volume. We will do everything we can to get to you as soon as possible, but the wait may be upwards of three hours. Please be patient.

Is Everything Free?

It is free to be seen at our clinic, and all in house services and certain referrals are free of charge upon certain conditions. Services rendered for referrals not covered by the SOC are at cost to the patient. While our services are provided at no cost we gladly accept donations, which help the clinic to continue providing these services to you and our community. The traditional donation is $5.

How is the Student Outreach Clinic Funded?

The Student Outreach Clinic is funded through generous grants from the following organizations:

  • Aspire Capital Advisors
  • Nell J. Redfield Foundation
  • Patricia D. Cafferata, Esq. in memory of H. Treat Cafferata, M.D.

Financial contributions can also be made at the time of your visit or via an online donation.

Do You Have a Psychiatrist or Psychologist Available?

We are not able to provide mental health services. If such services are needed in conjunction with another medical issue, we can however, provide a referral.
