About the DeSales Free Clinic

The DeSales Free Clinic (The Clinic) is a free medical clinic housed inside the Allentown Rescue Mission in downtown Allentown and run by students in the DeSales University Physician Assistant Program. After opening its doors in January 2007, The Clinic has provided thousands of dollars worth of free medical care, medications, vaccinations, laboratory services and imaging to those using the services of the Allentown Rescue Mission.

The Clinic gives the men of the Allentown Rescue Mission the opportunity to receive great medical care completely free of charge and allows students to see the true meaning of service. DeSales students treat real patients with significant medical problems, many of whom have never had a positive experience with a medical professional.

The DeSales Free Clinic is completely supported by student fundraising efforts and private donations.

Physician Assistant students: to receive full consideration for the next academic year, your CASPA application must be verified by CASPA no later than December 1.
