Abstract

The East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership (EHHOP) is a medical student-run and attending-supervised clinic that provides primary care to predominantly Spanish-speaking, uninsured patients living in East Harlem, New York. In 2010, the clinic launched a Women’s Health Clinic (WHC), to offer comprehensive gynecologic and reproductive healthcare under the guidance of faculty gynecologists. In this cross-sectional study, we analyzed WHC data from January 2018 to March 2021. Over this period, 59 individual patients were seen over 39 clinical sessions through a total of 164 clinical encounters staffed by 43 medical students and 19 faculty preceptors from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mount Sinai. The most common reasons for referral to the EHHOP WHC were abnormal uterine bleeding, contraception counseling, and management of abnormal Pap smears; the most common procedures performed were Pap smears, long-acting reversible contraception placements and removals, and colposcopies. We discuss the critical role that student-run, physician-supervised reproductive health clinics play in reducing disparities in gynecologic care for uninsured women.
