Charting New Paths

Richard H. Fine, MD practiced medicine at ZSFG for 40 years. In 1970, he created one of the first outpatient clinics at a public hospital in the U.S., and then helped found a primary care residency program to train doctors to work with poor and vulnerable patients.

Working Tirelessly for the Underserved

Known for his strong social conscience, Dr. Fine worked tirelessly and passionately caring for the poor, the homeless, those with AIDS in the early days of the epidemic, and the incarcerated. Today, his legacy lives on in this clinic that bears his name.
