About HOPE Clinic
The Health Outreach Program of Elon (HOPE Clinic) offers physical therapy services free of charge to those who are uninsured or under-insured in Alamance County and surrounding areas.
The HOPE Clinic is a student-run pro bono clinic that is managed and operated by Elon Doctor of Physical Therapy students. The clinic has run on a weekly basis since November, 2013 and was the first student-run pro bono clinic in North Carolina.
Elon DPTE students treat individuals with various musculoskeletal and neurological impairments under the supervision of volunteer licensed clinicians from the faculty and from the community.
Since The HOPE Clinic’s first year of operation, the clinic has saved the community over $302,691.32 in medical costs and has seen over 1,838 patients. Over 25 different licensed physical therapists and over 275 Elon DPTE students have volunteered at the clinic.
The HOPE Clinic is a chance for Elon DPTE students to improve their clinical skills outside of their scheduled clinical rotations, an outlet for licensed physical therapists to mentor students and provide pro bono service, as well as an opportunity to provide high quality free health care to residents of our local community.
