Street Medicine Phoenix (SMP) is a student-driven interprofessional health care and social justice team consisting of students and faculty from the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University. SMP serves as the outreach arm for Student Health Outreach for Wellness, which has a network of clinics across the valley serving vulnerable populations including individuals experiencing homelessness, individuals from low-income communities, and individuals recovering from substance use. Utilizing a biopsychosocial model of care, SMP aims to improve the health and well-being of Phoenix’s homeless population by holistically addressing each individual’s goals and needs. Student volunteers will learn the principles of holistic, person-centered care by working in interprofessional teams. These teams will be comprised of students from a multitude of professions including medicine, nursing, social work, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, public health, and more. Each team will interact with and address the needs of persons experiencing homelessness directly where they are, whether in a park or on the streets.
