You will have the ability to practice patient-centered medicine without the worry of running a business.

A Federally Qualified Health Center provides preventative, primary health, dental, mental health, and substance use services to undeserved communities. FQHCs receive federal funding to operate in communities with the goal to provide quality care with no concern for a patients ability to pay.
