MGH - Chelsea

CCC Chelsea is based at the MGH Chelsea HealthCare Center, a community health center that provides multi-specialty services including primary care and mental health services to a predominantly underserved and recent immigrant/refugee population. The clinic specifically targets two groups: individuals who frequently visit the Center’s Urgent Care clinic but have not been able to access routine primary care and individuals who have been recently released from prison. Our team aims to provide high quality care through an innovative model that integrates medical, psychiatric, and social services to meet the complex health and social needs of these patients in and beyond the clinic. Interpretation services are available on site for work with a linguistically diverse population, although proficiency in Spanish and/or Portuguese is preferred in our student volunteers. CCC Chelsea opened for primary care and psychiatry visits in October 2011.

Transportation to and from Chelsea is provided for students each clinic night.
