Starting a School-Based Clinic

Guidance for Starting a School-Based Clinic

Communities often explore school-based healthcare in partnership between schools/districts and medical organizations. Is your community seeking to open a school-based clinic? We have created three helpful modules with resources to support your efforts.


We also offer a variety of expert consultation and facilitation services for communities exploring, starting, and operating clinics. If you’re interested in learning more about how to set up a school-based clinic or exploring alternative school-linked models of care, contact Mariana Ledezma, Director of Community Engagement.
