Future of Health 2024

Training the next generation of health care providers

A fundraising campaign for CommunityHealth
The secondary mission at CommunityHealth, one of the nation's largest volunteer-based free clinics in the nation, is to train the next generation of health care providers.

Our three clinic locations host a range of training programs with Chicagoland medical and academic institutions, offering students the opportunity to serve uninsured, underserved, and undocumented populations over 20 specialties in their native languages. These devoted and passionate resident physicians, medical students, pharmacy students, nursing students, and dental hygiene students are the Future of Health.

Through their patient and compassionate hours providing free, comprehensive care to patients, trainees develop not only skills in patient care, but also a strong foundation in medical ethics and a lasting commitment to serving vulnerable populations.

Your contribution supports these revolutionary training programs that make Quality Health Care For All a reality. 

CommunityHealth has established partnerships with more than 15 medical and academic institutions across the greater Chicago area, including: 

  • Ascension St. Joseph Chicago Internal Medicine Residency Program
  • Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine at Midwestern University
  • Chicago State University College of Pharmacy
  • Advocate Lutheran General Hospital
  • Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine
  • Malcom X Dental Hygiene
