UCSF Fresno Mobile HeaL Clinic

Additional Programs.

In order to meet the need for personal surgical masks for our trainees starting tomorrow, we have established the following process:  Starting tomorrow (4/4/20) morning, you will be provided one surgical mask to use while in the clinical setting each day.  You can obtain this surgical mask from UCSF Fresno by coming to the UCSF Fresno building between the hours of 5 and 8 am and the hours of 5 and 8 pm.  You will be asked to complete a screening questionnaire.  Once you pass the screening, we will provide you one mask to use throughout the day.  If these times don’t work for you, security will have a few additional masks to dispense throughout the day.   If you provide care for a COVID-19 positive patient, you should use appropriate PPE (enhanced droplet protection for care and N-95 PPE for high risk aerosol procedures). HOWEVER, save your surgical mask for use with subsequent patients.  We will update as the week goes on after the weekend.  Please pass this on to your colleagues to make sure everyone is aware of the process.

We are working hard to provide you a safe environment for patient care.  Let’s all support each other as we do what we trained to do!  These are unprecedented times in our lives, and this is when we step forward as a profession.

Medical students interested in giving back to the community, working with and caring for underserved and diverse groups of patients and networking with health professionals will want to join UCSF Fresno’s Mobile Health and Learning or Mobile HeaL clinic.

Dr. Kenny Banh with students at Mobile Heal

Mobile HeaL provides basic health screenings and vaccinations in San Joaquin Valley communities and will help link patients with follow-up care.

Please see our promotional flyer for the list of services we provide and for more information regarding how we are helping to improve the health of the San Joaquin Valley

The effort involves faculty physicians at UCSF Fresno, residents, medical students, regional college and university pre-health students and other community partners.  Participating pre-health students gain valuable clinical skills – experiences that are needed to be successful applicants to health professional schools. Medical students gain knowledge and develop the skills needed as practicing physicians. To build and enhance their skills, pre-health and medical students work alongside experienced medical residents and faculty physicians.

Benefits of Involvement

  • Make social connections and develop sense of community
  • Interact with faculty, business and community leaders and experts in various disciplines
  • Enhance a resume with demonstrated skills valued by potential employers, programs and residencies
