The Magis Clinic is a student-run, free clinic, open to all people. Inspired by Jesuit values, we are dedicated to providing quality and compassionate healthcare to the underserved in the Greater Omaha community. As part of Creighton University, we also work towards forming and educating students to be agents of change.
Statement of Values
Founded in 2004 by Creighton University School of Medicine students, the Magis Clinic is dedicated to:
- Providing the standard of care to men and women of all ages and backgrounds
- Cooperating with other healthcare providers to maintain continuity of care
- Instilling in patients a sense of value for one’s own health
- Fostering in students a lifelong commitment to service
The Magis Clinic and its partners provide free healthcare and referrals to existing community services. It is the first free medical clinic in Omaha open on Saturdays that treats homeless men, women, children and the medically uninsured. Services include basic acute primary care consultations and follow-up, physical exams, mental health care, STD testing, laboratory services, including basic blood tests; pharmaceuticals. Magis Clinic volunteers also partner with the Charles Drew Health Center, coordinating their efforts to achieve the mission of the Magis Clinic.
Who We Are
Founded and run by students of the Creighton University School of Medicine since 2004, the Magis Clinic serves the homeless and uninsured of Omaha. The Magis Clinic is staffed by volunteer students, physicians and pharmacists from the Creighton University School of Medicine and the School of Pharmacy.
What are the Magis Clinic hours?
We provide acute care services every Saturday from 1:30 - 5:30 pm and every other Wednesday from 5:30-7:30. Psychiatry Clinics are held every other Saturday from 10:00am - 1:00pm.
Do you accept drop-in patients?
Yes! Our acute care and sexual health clinics on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, as well as our special events, are walk-in only. Saturday psychiatric care clinics require referrals that can be obtained through our acute care clinics or case workers except in emergency situations.
Do I need any documentation to be seen at the clinic?
No. We do not ask for any specific documentation (including proof of identification, homelessness or immigration status) from any of our patients.
What about payment/insurance?
All care we provide is free of charge. While we do not require payment or donations from our patients, we do ask that those with adequate insurance refrain from using the clinic.
Do you provide STD testing?
Yes! We provide sexually transmitted infection testing (including gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV and Hepatitis C) at both our acute care and sexual health clinics. We also provide patients with access to treatment for sexually transmitted infections.
Do you treat children at the Magis Clinic?
Yes, we can treat children. However, our clinical staff changes from week to week so there will not always be a physician specializing in children’s medical care available.
