Mission of Mercy Clinic
"Mission of Mercy focuses on healing through love and restoring dignity to the poor. Our doctors and students provide medical care with compassion and understanding, and by utilizing available resources." - Dr. Brad Smith, medical director, Arizona Mission of Mercy

For many of its patients, Mission of Mercy’s Mobile Health Clinic is their only source of healthcare. Mission of Mercy provides primary medical care and medications to uninsured and underinsured patients at seven locations in the Phoenix metro area. With the mission to “Restore dignity through love,” volunteer medical teams see hundreds of patients weekly, supported by the Mission of Mercy RV that houses two exam rooms and a well-stocked pharmacy.

On any given day, student clinicians and physicians see an average of 80 to 100 patients through the valley-wide locations. 

As an SCNM clinical student, you will see patients at four of the locations for a full array of chronic and acute diseases; diabetes, heart disease, asthma; and a full spectrum of chronic and acute disease processes. You will learn to work efficiently alongside conventional medical providers, and you will use modalities such as medications and lifestyle changes.
