The Student Faculty Collaborative Clinic (SFCC) is a student-run clinic at FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine that operates within the Universal Heritage Institute, a community-run, free clinic in Opa Locka. SFCC is made up of faculty and student volunteers from all levels of medical training, with the common goal of providing the best quality of care to our uninsured patients. We focus on how the social determinants of health impact our patients’ chronic diseases, well-being, living situations and access to care. In addition to prescribing medications and ordering diagnostic tests, we provide our patients with cost-conscious community resources, treatments, and referrals.
