Student-run free clinic
In every sense of the word, U-M's Student-Run Free Clinic, located in downtown Pinckney, is student-generated. From scheduling appointments and ordering supplies to conducting physical exams and following up, the medical students are responsible for taking care of their uninsured patients. In this video, students discuss how the clinic gives them the chance to develop operational and leadership skills.

In recent years, the sports, science and medical communities have come to understand the devastating long-term effects that repeated concussions and even weaker blows to the head can have on athletes' brains. This video shows how U-M engineers and doctors are testing two high-profile head impact sensors that could improve understanding of how the head and neck respond to hits that athletes might experience.
