Skin cancer is a major public health problem. Unfortunately, individuals who lack health insurance have lower skin cancer screening rates compared to insured individual and, therefore, have a higher risk of more advanced cancer diagnoses. Student-run health clinics may be the answer to this dilemma. Student-run health clinics can not only help by providing essential dermatologic services to the general population, both insured and uninsured, but also provide early exposure to dermatology education for medical students.
