Volunteers In Medicine relies on the collective effort of volunteer support in a range of medical and administrative areas to keep the clinic running. Volunteers contribute to our daily operations and our long-term mission of ensuring that low-income, underserved Clackamas County residents have access to quality health care. We have opportunities for medically trained and nonmedical volunteers.
We are actively recruiting for the following Volunteer Positions.
Supports the patients and providers of the clinic by escorting patients throughout the clinic to the exam room or lab, recording vital signs, documenting in the patient’s medical record, cleaning exam room after patient use, and stocking supplies in exam rooms.
Must be licensed physicians or nurse practitioners. We use general providers and specialists.
Front desk personnel welcome and check patients in, answer and direct phone calls and schedule appointments. As the welcoming faces of the clinic, front desk volunteers provide information regarding our organization and community resources for anyone who walks through our front doors.
Interpreters provide translation at the front desk and for medical staff. Interpretive services may involve face-to-face interaction, communication via phone or writing.
Laboratory volunteers collect blood and urine specimens for processing as required by medical personnel orders. The lab assistant performs CLIA-waived testing in support of patient care, and performs quality control on CLIA-waived tests.
Volunteers work alongside our physicians to chart patient encounters using our electronic medical record system. The position involves direct patient contact and provides experience for volunteers looking to enter healthcare.
Screeners determine patient eligibility for clinic services by verifying residency and income requirements. The position allows volunteers to learn about the Oregon Health Plan, community resources and social services.
