- About Us
United Community Clinic (UCC) is a free health clinic coordinated by University of Pennsylvania students from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Social Work. Located in a church in the East Parkside community of West Philadelphia, UCC draws upon the resources and expertise of this multi-disciplinary group of students in order to offer a wide range of services to the surrounding community. Our goal is to develop an understanding of the needs of the community, and respond to those needs by providing clinical assistance, education, referral, and representation services.
UCC provides care to anyone who needs it. In 2011, the clinic saw a total of 575 patients, more than two-thirds of whom had no health insurance.
Patients can be guaranteed a spot by
signing up between 8:00am and 4:00pm
the same day they wish to be seen.
In an effort to reduce wait times and
provide better service, patients are now
able to sign up for a particular time slot; however, patients must arrive 15 minutes
prior to their appointment time.
