Volunteer/Job Shadowing

Many of our clinics offer volunteer and shadowing opportunties.

To find a place to volunteer, go to the CLINICS tab and find a specific geographic area that appeals to you.  Directly contact each clinic to find out about specific opportunities.  Some have well developed volunteer programs, whereas other clinics have a limited capacity.  All our clinics can use your prayers, the best volunteer position you can choose!

Medical Ministry Intern supports the clinic as an integral staff member through ongoing tasks related to administration, clinician support, quality improvement, community outreach, and management of special projects. The intern also works collaboratively with medical professionals and administrative staff to help fulfill the Clinic’s mission of proclaiming the message of Jesus by serving the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the uninsured. The intern will also learn how a charitable clinic operates behind-the-scenes, gain an appreciation for the systems and support that directly impact the delivery of clinical care, gain skills and knowledge surrounding health center leadership, and acquire a better understanding of how to provide holistic, Christ-centered healthcare.
