Recruiting Organization: Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic
Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic is an extraordinary example of what can be accomplished when a group of volunteers work together to serve the needs of the community. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, we have been able to provide a free primary care home to adults living at or below the 299% of poverty level on Johns, Wadmalaw or James Island, Folly Beach, or those who serve downtown Charleston's hospitality industry.
BIFMC is seeking volunteer English/Spanish Interpreters to assist our physicians and nurses as they communicate and translate the health needs of our Spanish-speaking patients in a primary care medical setting. The Clinic is currenty staffed by 140 volunteer physicians, nurses, and administrative support, treating over 450 patients each month. Conversational speakers will answer phones and enroll new patients. Fluency and knowledge of some medical terms are needed in the exam room to interpret for doctors and patients.
Compassion and a desire to make a difference required. Due to the nature of our work and the training required, we request at least a 6 month minimum for volunteers, with scheduling flexibility.
