Volunteers

‚ÄčInterested in becoming a volunteer?

We are very grateful to all our volunteers. The commitment of our volunteer faculty, pre-health professional, and community volunteers over the past ten years has been instrumental in the growth of the clinic and the ever-increasing quality and breadth of care offered.

Student and Community Volunteers

UCSD Student-Run Free Clinic non-/pre-professional volunteer roles include helping patients access low-cost and/or free medications, managing the set-up/closing and flow of the clinic, inventory and supply ordering, collecting and entering patient data, logging in and labeling patient medications and, Spanish-English translators who assist patients, medical students, and faculty physicians in understanding each other. You will be exposed to an exciting atmosphere where you will work as a team to assist those in our community that have no other option for medical care. If you are seeking a volunteer position as a pre-Pharmacy volunteer, please contact Eduardo Fricovsky at esfricovsky@ucsd.edu.

To facilitate communication, we have set up a Yahoo Group. To join the group, go to the Yahoo Group page. Once you join the group, you will receive notices of volunteer openings as they occur. A yahoo e-mail address is not required.

While positions can open up any time during the year, we have the greatest turnover in May/June and August/September. If you do not receive notice of an opening, it means we have a full staff of volunteers. Your patience and perseverance will be rewarded. Again, thank you for wanting to be a part of the UCSD Student-Run Free Clinic Project.

Health Professional Volunteers

If you are a licensed health professional interested in donating your time and skills to the health and well-being of the underserved in San Diego County, we wholeheartedly welcome your participation. Some of our volunteer faculty come as often as twice a week, while others come about once every few months. The majority of our volunteer faculty attends at the clinic once a month. We are appreciative of any commitment that you can make. All attendings at the Free Clinic Project must be or become members of the salaried or voluntary faculty of UCSD School of Medicine. If you would like to become a member of the voluntary faculty, or if you are already a member and would like to sign up, please contact Lisa Deferville at the address or email listed below.
