The U-M School of Nursing was one of 16 nursing schools selected by the National Center from Interprofessional Practice and Education to lead programs in which graduate nursing students, and students from other health professions, will work together in community-based clinical settings.

U-M Nursing students and faculty will join U-M Medical School faculty and medical students operating the student-run free clinic in Pinckney on this initiative.

Established in 2012, the clinic offers free care every Saturday afternoon to uninsured and underserved residents of rural Livingston County and surrounding areas. The medical students, nurse practitioner students, nurse practitioners and physicians will work together to provide care, learning in the process how to become collaborative, efficient teams.
