BVMI provides free primary healthcare to low-income Bergen County residents who do not have health insurance. Our patients lack the means to pay for medical care; BVMI keeps our patients out of local Emergency Departments.
Healthcare professionals are at the heart of BVMI. A team of 65 volunteer physicians, nurses and other medical scribes provide medical care for BVMI’s patients. Our scribes specialize in charting physician-patient encounters during medical exams.
If you are a student getting ready to attend medical school or presently in medical school and are looking for experience, BVMI is the right place for you. This volunteer position offers one-on-one collaboration with a physician and is unprecedented in terms of exposure to real medicine in practice. Our scribes learn about patient care on the job in real time.
The center is open Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm. Thursday we are open until 7pm and we are flexible in terms of how often and how much time you spend at BVMI
Our patients come from many different backgrounds; please let us know if you are bilingual (Spanish, Korean, Chinese, etc).
