SHIP's History


Shifa Clinic OC was established in 2009, the first student-run free clinic at UC Irvine as a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Shifa OC was nationally recognized by President Clinton for its contribution and impact on the local community.

Since moving to its permanent fully-funded location on Crescent Avenue in 2014, our clinic was renamed to Crescent Clinic OC. Our clinic has served over 2500 patients to date, with a team of 14 volunteer physicians and over 50 students, and now offers dental and optometry services, family care, and a food pantry.
