For 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
To facilitate communication, we have set up a Yahoo Group. To join the group, go to the Yahoo Groups main page. Enter "fcvolunteer" into the blank in the upper left hand corner. You will be taken to our group page and will be asked about joining. Once you join our 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.
