    for a clinic You are being paid by the clinic. You may actually work somewhere other than the clinic, like a university.

    at a clinic You are employed in the immediate vicinity of or inside the clinic. You may work for the clinic as a doctor, or you may sell hot dogs in the lobby.

    in a clinic Similar to at a clinic except you are always inside the clinic.

    There is also by a clinic which implies that you work somewhere other than the clinic itself.
