At the end of 2005, medical students from the classes of 2008 and 2009 gathered around a shared interest in starting a student-run health clinic at Stony Brook. The Dean of the Medical School supported the establishment of a student-run health clinic as one of his proposed educational initiatives, and a steering committee consisting of 6 medical students and Dean Aldustus Jordan was formed in the beginning of 2006. 

In October of 2008, the clinic opened its doors for the first clinic session.
