DeSales Clinics

DeSales University provides three free clinics for the community.

Under the supervision of licensed clinicians, DeSales students serve Lehigh valley residents who are underinsured, uninsured, or who simply choose to use clinic resources due to convenience.

Through our medical, speech, and physical therapy clinics, we provide compassionate and cost-effective services to community members, while also providing vital clinical experience to our future healthcare providers.
