United Way of Tarrant County

HSC and Remote Area Medical - RAM(r) - a major nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free, quality, dental, vision and medical care to underserved and uninsured individuals - is bringing a free clinic to Fort Worth, Texas, on Dec. 11th & 12th, 2021.

The free clinic will provide dental, vision, and medical services to patients on a first-come, first-served basis. All RAM services are free and no ID is required.

The University of North Texas Health Science Center is proud to partner with RAM to provide these crucial medical services to our community."

Volunteering at a RAM clinic is not your typical 9 to 5 day at the office. It requires a commitment to hard work, but it is truly an exhilarating and rewarding experience. The days are long, the work is tiring, and yet clinic after clinic our volunteers bounce in with energy and smiles, ready to make a patient’s day better.

In order to make a RAM clinic run smoothly, it takes an army of devoted volunteers with diverse backgrounds and interests to come together for one mission: to prevent pain and alleviate suffering. We truly hope to see you at a clinic as you become part of a team that brings tens of thousands of Americans much-needed care.

General volunteer:

General Support volunteers are truly the glue that makes the rest of our work possible.

In General Support, you can expect assignments as varied from registering patients as they walk in the door, helping with traffic flow and ensuring patients know where to go, making glasses on our mobile eye lab (we’ll teach you, don’t worry), helping patients pick out their frames, serving food to patients and fellow volunteers, and much more. Of course, assignments are given on a first-come, first-serve basis, so there is no guarantee you will be given your first choice.

General Support is an incredible opportunity to see the many, many parts that make up a clinic, and we hope you’ll find it as incredible as we do.

For those interested in dental work who are not fourth-year dental students, you may work in the dental department doing sterilization or - if you’re into the gross stuff - handling fluid disposal. In order to work these jobs, you must have Blood Borne Pathogen Certification. It is a simple, quick, online course that is easily available through websites such as: BBP, The Red Cross, and any other OSHA-compliant process.
