“We are very excited to see patients,” said Calvin Lee, a student pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy at the Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions.
Lee and Allie Harper, who are in the same program, spearheaded the founding of the student-run pro bono clinic, which provides physical therapy services to low-income patients.
The clinic, which began last month and runs for a few hours on Wednesday, is able to see four patients a week, helping to open up the caseload at the Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions Foundation Community Rehabilitation Clinic, which shares the same space in Provo.
About 40 students work under the direction of volunteering Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions faculty in the student-run pro bono clinic.
