CARES Medical Clinic

CARES Clinic with MUSC Logo

CARES is a nonprofit organization providing free medical care to uninsured patients aged 18 and older in the local Charleston area since 2005 (those insured under Medicare or Medicaid do not qualify). It is operated and managed by professional students of MUSC for the opportunity to learn about medicine and the inter-workings of a free clinic. At CARES, medical, pharmacy, and PA students follow licensed physicians who are volunteering their time to care for our patients. 

The CARES Clinic was awarded the 2015-2016 "MUSC Gives Back - University Wide Organization Community Volunteer Award for Student Organizations" for the second year in a row. In addition, the CARES Clinic Spanish Night was awarded the 2015-2016 "MUSC Gives Back - College of Medicine Community Volunteer Award for Student Organizations."
