The Mobile Medical Clinic is always looking for dedicated volunteers and energetic interns in these subject areas:
Clinical Volunteer Positions
Our volunteer healthcare providers must be licensed, board certified physicians, nurse practitioners, or registered nurses with pediatric experience. A background check and proof of licensure is required. We welcome anyone who is currently practicing, teaching at a college level or enjoying retirement. Bilingual in Spanish, Arabic or East Asian languages is a plus.
On the mobile clinic, RN’s complete basic intake procedures and vital statistics tasks, as well as various well-child screens to prepare children to see the medical provider. RN's also draw up and administer recommended and required immunizations to children and babies.
Primary Care Provider (Pediatrician or Nurse Practitioner)
Providers perform well-child exams for children birth through 18 years old, and direct MMC staff to provide referrals and follow up visits. Medical providers may also be consulted for clinical policy changes. The experience and expertise of our volunteer providers are invaluable for the mobile clinic program.
- Because of the unique set up of a mobile clinic, we ask a minimum commitment of 6 months, but how often you volunteer with us is up to you: Once a month, twice a month, as needed, etc. Some of our providers have been with us every month for more than ten years.
- For each mobile clinic event, patients are scheduled for four hours, usually from 3pm-7pm, with each child having a 15-minute appointment. Providers and staff meet the mobile clinic at St. Joseph’s Hospital where it “lives” and ride to the clinic site. The total time spent with us is about 7 hours per clinic including driving time.
