Robert R. Frank Student Run Free Clinic

5555 Conner Street
Detroit, MI 48213


In the spring of 2008, Tyler Southwell (Class of 2008) held a meeting with Wayne State University School of Medicine (WSUSOM) students to propose the idea of establishing a student-run free clinic (SRFC) in Detroit. From this initial meeting emerged a core group of interested students, led by Dorothy Gotlib (Class of 2011) and Robert McWhirther (Class of 2011), who guided the SRFC initiative and established relationships with local community organizations, most notably, Capuchin Soup Kitchen, from which the clinic receives its patients, and Mercy Primary Care, which donates its facilities.
