The Trust Clinic is a start-up integrated care clinic aimed at serving a diverse and primarily African-American, very low-income, and homeless or at risk of homelessness patient population located in downtown Oakland. The clinic is a dynamic collaboration between several agencies, including Alameda County Health Care Services Agency, Behavioral Health Care Services, and LifeLong Medical Care designed to foster interagency collaboration and integration while supporting chronically disabled individuals with social, behavioral, and medical treatment. In addition to primary mood and psychotic disorders, the clinic serves a group of patients with intergenerational trauma and subsequent substance use disorders. The clinic is whole-person care and recovery oriented and offers opportunities to work with an underserved patient population. As it is in its early stages and actively developing, there are ample opportunities for involvement with development of clinic programs and services. As the clinic has close relationships with county leadership at many levels, the experience could provide access to these individuals and meetings depending on interest. The clinic is easily accessible by BART.
Please note: You are only required to commute to San Francisco and be present at ZSFG for didactics on Wednesdays, and the remainder of your work week will be spent at the Trust Clinic in downtown Oakland. For those open to living in the East Bay, this might make the Trust Clinic an appealing option.
