This USF Health-wide, interdisciplinary program enables USF Health students in medicine, nursing, public health, pharmacy, physical therapy, and physician assistant programs to participate in meaningful, rewarding, and fun health-related community service activities together. Examples include health screenings, flu shot drives, health education, fundraising projects, fitness, and safety activities in medically diverse communities across the Tampa Bay region and Florida.
Through direct outreach on the streets and in shelters, the Tampa Bay Street Medicine (TBSM) aims to provide medical care, education, and health care access to some of the most vulnerable members of the community. Medical student volunteers work under the clinical supervision of USF Health volunteer physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners to engage individuals outside the traditional health care system, assessing each unique situation holistically and developing a realistic health plan.
The BRIDGE Healthcare Clinic is a student-run free clinic located at the University of South Florida in the heart of the University Area Community. Our goal is to create a health facility where patients are treated compassionately and cared for through the collaboration of medicine, social work, physical therapy, pharmacy, and public health providers. We believe a healthy community is a prosperous one, and we strive to improve the well-being of the University Area Community.
