As a premier public research university, our health sciences enterprise and professionals sponsor programs and initiatives to grow and support health and wellness throughout the broader community.

Explore the programs you can take advantage of:

  • Lighthouse Free Medical Clinic

    This nonprofit, drop-in clinic provides free, routine health care and preventive services to uninsured patients on Buffalo’s East Side. It is entirely managed and funded through the work of eight UB medical students each year, working in partnership with the community service organization Group Ministries.

  • Mobile Dental Van

    UB's School of Dental Medicine has served the oral health care needs of Chautauqua County’s children for 15 years with its school-based mobile dental van. Thanks to a federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration and gifts from the Lenna Foundation and the Ralph C. Sheldon Foundation, the school has been able to purchase S-Miles To Go, a state-of-the-art mobile dental unit equipped with three dental chairs.

  • Mini Medical School

    University at Buffalo’s Jacob’s School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences partnered up with UBMD’s Physician’s Group to host Mini Med School, a med school experience available for anyone sixteen and older in the WNY community who is interested in the medical school, or in medical education in general. Classes on a wide variety of compelling medical subjects geared toward the layperson are taught by some of UB's leading physicians and researchers.
