COME JOIN OUR TEAM OF VOLUNTEER MEDICAL INTERPRETERS!

BVMI provides free primary healthcare to low-income Bergen County residents who do not have health insurance. Our patients come from many different backgrounds, speaking many different languages, Our volunteer interpreters ensure that our patients and practitioners are communicating clearly, which ensures that our patients receive the care they need.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to go to medical school or a retired practitioner.

We are primarily in need of Spanish speakers, especially those with a medical background. However, other languages, including Korean, are also needed.

Mission Statement

Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative provides FREE primary care to low-income, working Bergen County, NJ residents who do not have health insurance. Our goal is to keep our patients out of the emergency room. We believe that how people are treated during a visit to BVMI’s Healthcare Center is as important as the medical care they receive.
