Volunteer

We Need You!!

Volunteers in Medicine clinics rely heavily on active-practicing and retired health professionals to assess, diagnose, and treat patients. Volunteer professionals are needed in the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, podiatry, optometry, behavioral health, physical therapy, social work, and much more. In addition, clinics utilize many non-clinical volunteers for a variety of patient support, administrative, and clerical roles.

Since the advent of Covid-19, most Volunteers in Medicine clinics have begun utilizing telehealth to maintain and improve access to a variety of healthcare services and supports. Volunteers may choose to offer their time and talents in-person, via telehealth, or both.

Each Volunteers in Medicine clinic handles volunteer intake, screening, orientation, training, liability protection, scheduling, and supervision. We at Volunteers in Medicine America are happy to help recruit and refer interested volunteers to our clinic affiliates. For more information about volunteering and to register your interest in volunteering, send an email to volunteer@vimamerica.org, attach a copy of your bio or resume, and a member of our team will be happy to follow up with you.
