The UCSD SRFCP provides healthcare to an underserved population of San Diego that otherwise does not qualify for access to care3. While the clinic mainly provides primary care, there are also a number of specialty clinics available, including otolaryngology. The otolaryngology clinic began in January 2010, with the addition of audiology in early 2011. The clinic began with 1 volunteer attending and 1 audiologist who saw 2‐3 patients every 2 months. Currently, there are 2 volunteer attendings who see 2‐4 patients every 6 weeks in addition to the audiology clinic. The purpose of this study is to identify and describe the UCSD SRFCP ENT population and to describe this sustainable clinic model.
