Can anyone visit the clinic?

The clinic will provide services for children, teens and adults who do not have health insurance or are underinsured. Adults are treated in both fall and spring, and children are treated only during the spring.

Faculty, staff and students at The College of St. Scholastica are also welcome to schedule an appointment with the clinic.

You do not need to be referred to the maurices Community Clinic. While referrals from primary care providers are appreciated, they are not required to receive care.

What can I expect from my first visit?

At your first appointment you will have an evaluation with a student therapist. You’ll cover issues such as your health, concerns, goals and current status.

The student, working with faculty, will then establish a plan to help you achieve your goals. Your follow-up treatment will be provided by either occupational therapy, physical therapy, physical therapy assistant students or a combination.
