volunteer for the open door clinic

Join our amazing team! Our clinic is able to run efficiently and effectively because of our remarkable and talented 80+ volunteers. Only through their kindness and generosity can we 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. Please select the application below that’s right for you. Fill out the paperwork and email ([email protected]), fax (802-388-4498) or mail (100 Porter Dr, Middlebury VT 05753) it to us!

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
  • 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.

Please fill out the application available clicking the tab below, and send it to us with:

  • copy of current Vermont professional license
  • copy of current CPR or ACLS certification (if any)
  • copy of current driver’s license or passport
  • clinical privileges delineation form (2 pages)
  • copy of current DEA certificate
  • Statement of Personal Fitness including results of TB test and immunization status
  • short narrative explaining any malpractice claims against you in the past 10 years
  • signed Volunteer Agreement Form

Medical Interpreters & Translators

Because over 40% of our patients are mother-tongue 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.

General volunteers

We welcome volunteers with diverse skill sets and interests to help us with medical office tasks, Tuesday clinic front desk roles, website and patient education and outreach materials development. Spanish language skills are welcome but not required. Consider applying and volunteering with a friend! Please complete the general volunteer application elements below, and send them to [email protected]
