TEACH and CARE Student-Run Clinic

Please scroll down to the bottom of this page for insurance information. TEACH and CARE currently sees patients ages 18 and older. For further questions, call (267) 563-1568.

Established in 2015, the TEACH and CARE student-run clinic seeks to supplement primary care services offered at Temple University Hospital. The clinic welcomes walk-ins and is open from 5:00pm to 7:30pm in Jones Hall on the Temple Health Sciences Campus.

The clinic serves those who seek after-hours care, as well as those who do not currently have health insurance. We offer financial counseling to help patients sign up for health insurance if they are not currently on a plan. This will help ensure follow-up if needed, as well as future access to healthcare at Temple or elsewhere.

For more information about the establishment of TEACH and CARE, see this recent article.
