We Always need

Office assistants work with a team leader to prepare charts, answer the phone, filing and many more tasks necessary for a medical clinic.

Translators are the key to communication for many of our patients. Without you many of our patients cannot receive the care they need.

Nurses serve both the patients and the provider, being the first medical person seen by the patient and relaying important information to the provider.

Student Nurses are welcome and serve in a similar role as  nurse, under the guidance of a nurse.

Providers can be medical doctors, nurse practitioners or physician assistants. All work with a team of volunteers to give the best quality care possible for our patients.
