Be a General Volunteer for MobileMed!

MobileMed is seeking non-licensed volunteers to support the efforts of our clinical staff and volunteers. There is a lot of work done in our clinics that does not require medical credentials. We would greatly appreciate your assistance in helping us with administrative tasks, translation, reception responsibilities, medical assistance, and scribing for our providers.

General Volunteer Requirements

MobileMed requires that general volunteers come in for at least two, 4-hour clinic sessions a month, for at least six months. Our clinical staff and volunteers depend on the consistent presence of supporting volunteers, so interested individuals must be willing to make this commitment.

In office volunteering for Under 18s is currently on hold due to COVID-19. If you are under 18 and have an idea for how you could volunteer remotely, please get in touch!.
MobileMed cannot have individuals under the age of 18 volunteering in our clinic facilities, but we have an administrative office and would love to have young volunteers working with us at that location!
Helping out in our administrative office may include fielding phone calls, filing, photocopying, record keeping, data entry, and generally assisting staff. We would love to make use of your particular expertise and would be excited to hear from students who can offer valuable skills in the areas of graphic design, marketing, fundraising, website maintenance, or otherwise.

How to Apply

If you would you like to volunteer for MobileMed as an un-licensed individual, please submit your application to our volunteer coordinator, Tirza Ochrach-Konradi, through our volunteer@mobilemedicalcare.org email with subject line “your last name General Volunteer Application”. Attach your resume and a cover letter, describing your interest and why you would be a good candidate. In your application email, you must provide answers to the following questions:

  1. MobileMed requires that prospective volunteers commit to volunteering for two 4 hour sessions a month, for at least six months. Can you commit to this? Additionally, for what length of time do you see yourself volunteering with us?
  2. Do you speak any languages fluently, in addition to English?
  3. Which of our clinic sessions are you available for? Please specify locations and times. A listing of our clinic locations and their hours can be found here. Our clinics currently accepting volunteers include our Germantown Clinic (19735 Germantown Road), our East Montgomery Clinic (3300 Briggs Chaney Road), and our Rockville Clinic (981 Rollins Avenue).
    Provide all shifts for which you could be available, not just your preferred schedule. Each applicant is reviewed by clinical staff once. We will not resubmit you to them with additional availability, if your initial availability does not match with their current need.

Once you have applied, we will evaluate whether there is an open position that you could appropriately fill. Incomplete applications submitted without one of the three components (resume, cover letter, responses to questions) will not be reviewed. If there is a need that aligns with your skills and availability, your application will proceed to an interview with one of our clinic supervisors.

We look forward to hearing from you!
