Learn/Train Here

We partner with institutions of higher education to prevent and end homelessness. If your school is not listed below, we are not able to accommodate new MOU requests at this time.


Clinical Learning/Training

Health Care for the Homeless is committed to the development of future health professionals. Individuals placed here get an in-depth look at how community health centers function and learn about future health care careers. Applicants can be placed in various departments, including in clinics, community outreach, or program development, depending on their experience and interests.

Clinical learners regularly collaborate with our care providers as part of their professional training.

  • Graduate social work students fine-tune their personal approach and clinical skills as they assess walk-in clients and, eventually, carry their own caseloads and provide therapy sessions to clients.
  • Medical and nursing students learn about caring for individuals with very limited resources and deeply challenging life situations.

Our placements are also divided into TWO tracks:


Behavioral Health


Includes BSN/RN, Medical Assistant, Nursing and OT students seeking clinical rotations.

Includes BSW/MSW students seeking experience working with client caseloads.


Clinical Placements

Please note: clinical learning placements are very limited, and therefore, very competitive. Applicants who follow the instructions listed below have the highest chance of being approved for a placement at Health Care for the Homeless.
