Who We Are
The Women’s Community Clinic is a nurse-managed health center that provides full-scope primary care services, including sexual and reproductive health services, homeless outreach services, and health worker training programs to Bay Area women and girls. Since 1999, we have built a safe, respectful environment where low income and underinsured women and girls can receive direct access to health care services from providers they trust.
The Clinic has always run on the strength, commitment, and passion of our volunteers. Our volunteer-based organizational structure creates an unparalleled level of investment—we want to be here, we love what we do, and we value the input of all who are involved in our work. This innovative model enables us to provide women with quality health care while training the next generation of community health care leaders.
The Young Women’s Program provides prenatal care to clients, many of who are teens and transitional-aged youth. YWP came onsite to provide services at Women’ Community Clinic in 2011. You’ll work with an interdisciplinary team consisting of NPs, social workers, nutritionists, MAs, and physician consultants.
Precepting opportunities are Tuesdays from 8-1 and Thursdays from 12-5 with Young Women’s Program; Mondays from 1-9 and Fridays from 9-5 with Women’s Community Clinic.
