Equal Access Health Outcomes and Quality Improvement Research Team

Welcome to the Equal Access research team! The goals of our team are

  • To conduct research projects to improve the quality of the healthcare that we deliver to our patients, and the training that our health professional students receive
  • To document the impact that our free clinics have on the health of our patients, and the training of our health-professional students.
  • To disseminate our results through peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations.

These goals work in conjunction to improve the health of our patients, to improve the training received by our health-professional students, and ultimately to allow other student-run free clinics and medical schools to benefit from our work through publication of our findings.
