HEALTHCARE VOLUNTEERS

Physicians CareConnection (PCC) is a volunteer-based charitable organization coordinating medical care for people who are vulnerable (low income, uninsured, underinsured, underserved, and documented/undocumented immigrants) in Central Ohio. Our organization was established 25 years ago by the Columbus Medical Association to enable health care professionals and volunteers to provide quality health care for those most vulnerable in our community. 

Using our unique model of care coordination, PCC has achieved successful healthcare outcomes for high risk hard to reach populations in Central Ohio. Patients who have received our services have realized improved physical and mental health status, easier access to care, and a reduction in their use of emergency room services.

Healthcare Professionals are needed in all capacities, including nursing, dental care, and medical care.

Healthcare professionals can choose how they see patients: they can volunteer at our free Monday night clinics or commit to seeing patients at their offices.

COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS

Community volunteers play an integral role in our organization, from assisting with the logistics of our free clinic to helping us manage patient records. There are many opportunities to volunteer, whether at the Monday night clinic or assisting with tasks in the office. The majority of our volunteer opportunities are at our Monday night clinics during the afternoon and evening. For descriptions of community volunteer roles, please click here.

Volunteer Onboarding

Community volunteers (including undergraduate and pre-med students) must complete an application and onboarding process before volunteering at the Monday clinic or in the office. To complete the application, you will need to have the names and email addresses of two references who are willing to answer a brief survey via email. To begin applying, contact Bibiana Lagos at blagos@pcchealth.org. Please note that during the school year, volunteer roles that require less training tend to fill up quickly. Volunteer hours are not guaranteed. 

Training for in-depth roles will be announced as they are scheduled. Volunteers will be sent an invite to computer role trainings when they have finished the onboarding process.
