The setting for this project was a free clinic that serves an underserved and underprivileged community in the southeastern United States. The patient population is 80% Hispanic and 20% African American and Caucasian. The clinic also serves the community by doubling as a food bank and clothing center. Clinician staffing at the clinic included three physicians, two family nurse practitioners (FNPs), one physician assistant (PA), and a mixture of nurse practitioner (NP) and PA students. The students rotated through the clinic for one semester or multiple semesters as they progressed through their graduate program’s plan of study.
