Volunteering @ Arbor Edit
Arbor Free Clinic is staffed entirely by students and clinical volunteers from the Stanford community. Undergraduate students have the opportunity to interact with patients and medical professionals in a variety of ways: staffing the front desk, shadowing medical students and physicians, reading to children (Literacy Project), and completing special projects. Preclinical medical students learn how to take a medical history and present to an attending clinician, as well as to practice clinical procedures such as taking vital signs. Clinical medical students develop skills such as peforming a physical exam. Our physician volunteers act as both clinicians and teachers. In addition, students may gain extensive experience in running a community clinic by serving on the Arbor Steering Committee or as clinic managers.
An important aspect of the Arbor volunteer experience is working closely with a diverse patient population that is otherwise medically underserved. There are many opportunities for developing special projects to better assess and address the needs of this community.
