San Juan Bosco Clinic

San Juan Bosco (SJB) is one of two weekly UM student-run clinics delivering primary and specialty care to patients in the Miami community (see also Lotus House Wellness Clinic). In order to be eligible for care at SJB, patients must live at 200% of the federal poverty level or below. Our services include laboratory and diagnostic testing services through Baptist Health System provided at no cost to SJB patients. We also facilitate applications for financial assistance with the Jackson Health System for patients in need of procedures or surgery. The UM student-run SJB clinic operates every Tuesday night and rotates through 8 different medical specialties listed below. The daytime SJB clinic functions separately and provides primary care for adults and children as well as gynecological services. The clinic has been in operation since 1992 when it was formed with the Sisters of St. Joseph to meet the health needs of refugees and new immigrants in Miami-Dade County.

Staff Mission:

Integration of patient care and peer teaching is at the heart of the student-run DOCS San Juan Bosco clinic. We are committed to promoting the health and well-being of our patients by delivering quality specialty and primary care to underserved communities. At SJB, students benefit from a team-based approach to patient-centered care in a supportive learning environment led by volunteer physicians. We, as medical students at the Miller School of Medicine, view this service to our patients as an opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become compassionate physician-healers and patient advocates.
