Medication Dispensary

We have an on-site medication dispensary to provide any necessary medications to our patients at the end of their appointment, free of charge. Our medication dispensary is managed entirely by medical and pharmacy students, who maintain the medication formulary with the assistance of Vanderbilt clinical pharmacists. We have more than 200 medications, and almost all are purchased by the Shade Tree Clinic. We also help patients enroll in pharmaceutical assistance programs to obtain special medications at no cost that are not otherwise part of the formulary. We are committed to providing our patients with necessary vaccinations free of charge whenever possible and ensuring that our diabetic patients are provided with a free glucometer and test strips.

Our medication dispensary is run and maintained by students from the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. Students from the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy also actively volunteer in the medication dispensary.

  • Narcotics
  • Depressants
  • Hallucinogens
  • Any potentially addictive or psychoactive medication
