No further orientations will be scheduled until August 2017.

Nursing Volunteers

The Free Medical Clinic relies on over 45 volunteer registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants to provide staffing for its Walk-In Clinic capability. Many volunteers choose to work one day a month (for example, 3rd Tuesday of the month).

The nursing volunteers run the clinical operations in support of the volunteer providers. In addition to screening patients, nursing volunteers educate patients regarding their medical condition(s) and help manage the referral process for diagnostic testing and specialty care.

To volunteer, Registered Nurses must be licensed in South Carolina.

 

Administrative Volunteers

The Free Medical Clinic relies on hundreds of administrative volunteers to provide staffing for a wide variety of support operations. Many volunteers choose to work one day a month (for example, 3rd Tuesday of the month). Administrative volunteers help screen new patients to determine their eligibility, serve as translators (especially Spanish), maintain medical records, help process Patient Assistance Program (PAP) applications to get the medications, help with minor repairs to the facility and data entry/statistics compilation. In addition, there are special projects from time to time that are focused efforts.

To volunteer, you only need to be willing to help.

 

Pharmacy Volunteers

Pharmacy volunteers include pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy students.

 

Provider Volunteers

The Free Medical Clinic relies on over 45 volunteer physicians and nurse practitioners to provide staffing for its Walk-In Clinic capability. Some of the physician specialists have agreed to see our patients in their private practice setting where they are better suited to meet the patients’ needs. Many volunteer providers choose to work one day a month (for example, 3rd Tuesday of the month).

To volunteer, providers must be licensed in South Carolina. The clinic does maintain a malpractice policy for the volunteer providers. Also, uncompensated providers are covered under the state’s Good Samaritan law that limits liability except to gross negligence or willful misconduct.

 

Nurse Practitioner Preceptorships – All slots for the remainder of 2017 are full.

Please complete the application for Nurse Practitioner Preceptorship slots. Due to scheduling, priority will be given to USC and MUSC students.
