How You Can Help
There are a number of ways you can help MEDiC continue to provide medical care for the underserved in the Madison area. Opportunities are available for students, physicians and donors.
Are You a Student?
Currently, MEDiC can only use student volunteers from the following disciplines: Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, and Nurse Practitioner.
MEDiC Volunteers must attend an Orientation Session before they can begin volunteering. MEDiC holds two volunteers sessions each year: the first at the beginning of the summer, in June, and the second at the beginning of the academic year, in September. You should receive an email a few weeks before each orientation.
Pharmacy students attend their own orientation session. For more information on the Pharmacy orientations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with the Pharmacy Student Coordinator.
MEDiC makes every effort to give each student at least one volunteer shift per semester. However, demand for our volunteer positions are high, so this is not always possible. If you are not initially scheduled for a shift, you will receive emails each time a shift becomes available and can fill-in as needed.
If you have any questions regarding the next orientation or volunteer opportunities, please email email@example.com
Are You a Health Care Provider?
MEDiC welcomes physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists, and nurse practitioners of all medical fields and specialties to serve as volunteers in our clinics. Both attending and intern/resident physicians are eligible to participate.
Physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists and nurse practitioners who have an appointment with the UW School of Medicine and Public Health are eligible to volunteer immediately. Those without a faculty appointment are invited to apply for a volunteer appointment. All physicians who would like to volunteer for MEDiC should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
MEDiC operates on a small budget and in the past few years has been able to raise all of the funds necessary to provide patient care. Many of these funds come from direct donations, and MEDiC welcomes gifts of all size.
