Each Sunday, School of Medicine students and faculty host the Sojourner Clinic at Grand Avenue United Methodist Temple. The free clinic provides outpatient care to the homeless and underprivileged population of downtown Kansas City.

Hands on learning and clinical experience are integrated throughout all years of the program. During the first two years, this docent experience begins by helping teach students the fundamentals of medicine. Students experience a progressive increase of clinical responsibilities during the last four years.
