The clinic has been designed as a student-run clinic with medical students from several of the medical schools around Chicago working together in a collaborative effort to provide medical care to the uninsured and underserved under direct supervision of a physician fully licensed in the State of Illinois . The list of medical schools currently includes the University of Illinois at Chicago, Rush University, Northwestern University, Rosalind Franklin University, Loyola University, and the University of Chicago .
