How to Help
Volunteers in Medicine Clinic relies heavily on the help of volunteers and we are only able to offer all the various services thanks to the volunteers that are regularly coming to the Clinic. We have about 100 volunteers who help us on-site and many more specialists throughout the community who take referral patients.
Medical Volunteer Positions
Physician, APRN, PA
Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and PAs need a valid Florida license to be able to see our patients. For doctors who are licensed in another state, there is a possibility to apply for a limited license, if they are only practicing on a voluntary basis in Florida. This license is free for volunteers.
Registered Nurses and Patient Care Technicians help with patient care, take vital signs, draw blood for labs, do EKGs, update the electronic medical records system, clean exam rooms between patients and more.
Because VIM Clinic is a free-standing, not-for-profit organization that provides care to the indigent, our licensed volunteers are immune from medical malpractice when they sign up under the state’s Volunteer Health Care Provider Program.
Administrative Volunteer Positions
Greeters are the first contact patients and visitors have at the Clinic. They spend half a day every week in the lobby, sign patients into our electronic medical records program, provide them with paperwork as needed, announce guests to the VIM team and make reminder phone calls to patients for the next day.
All documents received from outside sources are being scanned into our electronic medical records program and assign the docs to the correct category and patient by the scanners. Some medical knowledge is helpful for this position but not mandatory.
We have a limited amount of administrative positions that mainly help us with database entry, especially around fundraising events. This position is perfect for someone who is extremely detail-oriented, comfortable on a computer and interested in learning new programs.
If you are interested to volunteer, also if you are specialized in another field not listed here, give us a call and we can discuss possibilities. Please contact Petra Eberle at [email protected] or (772) 463-4128 x216.
