Mobile Clinic Needs Volunteers

THE UCLA MOBILE CLINIC PROJECT (MCP) serves the homeless and transient communities of greater Los Angeles. Although MCP is student-run, attending physicians are needed to review client medical histories and help students with diagnosis and treatment; provide instruction about various diseases and disorders; and, at times, treat acute conditions. “The best part is watching students from multiple disciplines learn not only about the hardships of living on the streets and about serving medical needs, but also learning about the individual in front of them as a person,” says Walter G. Coppenrath III, M.D. ’04.
