Our Organization

The Iowa City Free Medical Clinic (FMC) is a non-profit organization, established in 1971. We believe that access to affordable health care is a basic human necessity. We strive to provide the widest range of medical and dental services possible to people in the Iowa City and surrounding community who would not otherwise have access to care.

Our principles of practice are:

  • To eliminate barriers to health care by offering services without cost.
  • To offer services that are non-judgmental and confidential.
  • To encourage the participation of patients in their own care.
  • To advocate for the medically under-served in our community.
