Free Clinic Student Perspective: Monica

Health Partners Free Clinic is a great place for students to pick up skill sets that they otherwise would not in their typical experiential rotations. However, Monica, our pharmacy extern for the month of March, has chosen a different path than the typical student.  She strategically chose to come here to prepare herself for a… ( read more )

Free Clinic Student Perspective: Deanna and Rukaiyah

The year 2021 started off with a lot of help from our two pharmacy externs, Deanna and Rukaiyah.  There are plenty of skills that our pharmacy students bring with them to the Clinic, but, usually, the most important thing to bring is an open heart and mind.  These two came to Health Partners with that… ( read more )

Free Clinic Annual Report 2020

So 2020 was …… yeah.  But we here at Health Partners Free Clinic were not defeated!  In fact, in 2020 we provided more value to the community than in many years past. Seriously!  Like, $200,000 worth of medical services more. We could not do it without the support of that same community and wish to… ( read more )

Free Clinic Student Perspective: Shelby

Well our pharmacy extern for the month of December was an oopsy.  That’s right, Shelby was not originally scheduled to be with us here at Health Partners, but, lucky for us, her original experiential site had to limit their staffing and passed on her.  The Clinic was blessed to have her though, as she played… ( read more )

Free Clinic Student Perspective: Dominique and Jake

Our monthly student perspective written by pharmacy students from Cedarville University and Ohio Northern University are always a delight to read.  These students can stay relatively conservative throughout the rotation, but never leave a doubt in our minds about how they feel when they turn in their 500-word perspective.  Dom and Jake are no exception… ( read more )

Free Clinic Student Perspective: Megan

Social Determinants of Health, or the conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes, are taken seriously here at Health Partners Free Clinic. This consideration is so vital to the therapeutic plans we prescribe that we make it mandatory for our students… ( read more )

Free Clinic Student Perspective: Josh and Olivia

There is something to be said about seeing something with your own eyes that cannot be unseen. Some of the most impactful memories we all walk around with include a moment when you have seen something happen that will be forever etched in your mind. For our September pharmacy students, the memories they take away… ( read more )

Student Perspective: Leno and Whitney

The patient care process, especially in our current healthcare system, can seem cold and sterile.  As healthcare providers, we idolize clean cut solutions to very complex problems.  Problems like homelessness, food insecurity, and abuse do not fall in our cookie-cut solution system well. Here at Health Partners, we value a warmer interaction with our patients… ( read more )

Student Perspective: Brianne and Dylan

The month of June could be described as frantic at best.  Our Country and community continues to be tested from all directions and the Clinic has done our best to provide those in need a safe and caring space to turn to.  That certainly would have been impossible without the hands of our two pharmacy… ( read more )

Student Perspective: Matt

For us here at the Clinic, we always see having our new students as a treat. On rare occasion, these students are new to us AND new to the hands-on clinical work that becomes the totality of their experiential education.  Matt, our May pharmacy student from Cedarville University, was just such a treat.  Health Partners had… ( read more )
