Volunteer

volunteer for the open door clinicOur clinic is able to run efficiently and effectively because of our remarkable and talented 140+ volunteers.

Only through their kindness and generosity we can strive to provide our services.

Depending on how you’d like to volunteer with us, the application process differs a little, as you can see below.

We don’t require that all our volunteers speak Spanish. But we do require that all volunteers attend a training before starting to volunteer.

Join this amazing team!

Healthcare Professionals

We are always searching for a wide range of medical professionals to deliver healthcare to those in need:

  • Physicians
  • Osteopaths and Naturopaths
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Registered Nurses
  • Dietitians/Nutritionists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Chiropractors
  • Mental Health Counselors
  • Dentists
  • Registered Dental Hygienists
  • EMTs – must have Vermont certification
  • Pharmacists

If you are a medical provider, the volunteer application process has an extra step. After getting your paperwork, we need to apply for malpractice insurance with the federal government, a process that can take up to eight weeks, so we appreciate your patience. Your Tb test results must be current within two years, and there is no need to send your immunization records, just have someone from your primary care medical home verify that you are up to date using the appropriate listed form.

Medical Interpreters & Translators

Because over 35% of our patients are native Spanish speakers, we are always in need of people who are bilingual or highly fluent in both English and Spanish. Medical Interpreters facilitate the delivery of care and obtain first-hand experience with public health while shadowing a wide variety of healthcare professionals.

We also have a great need for medical translators. Nearly all of the medical providers in Addison County have intake forms that require translation into Spanish.

We prefer that external language evaluations come from Spanish language professionals with current knowledge of your language ability. This is often a Spanish language instructor, teacher or professor. You can send the form to your evaluator and they will email it directly to us, or, if you prefer, we can arrange for you to be assessed by one of our volunteer evaluators over the phone or in person.


Administrative Support

We depend on a core group of volunteers who consistently help us with everything from preparing charts, surveys, and paperwork for clinic to greeting patients at the front desk and helping them get settled prior to seeing a provider.
