Volunteer Healthcare Providers
You must be NYU affiliated to be eligible to volunteer.
The NYCFC is excited to partner with NYU primary care physicians and NP providers interested in volunteering at the Free Clinic. Volunteer physicians and other healthcare providers are the cornerstone of the NYCFC. As a volunteer physicians, you will treat an eclectic and disenfranchised patient population with a broad range of medical problems.
Volunteer physicians oversee a number of volunteer medical student clinical teams, each comprised of one clinical (MSIII or MSIV) and one preclinical (MSI or MSII) medical student. The clinical teams, in conjunction with the volunteer physician, assess the patients being seen and develop a treatment plan that may include follow-up visits, laboratory testing, prescriptions, or referrals to specialized care at Bellevue. The primary capacity of the physician volunteer during this time is to take a teaching role, guiding the medical student teams in assessing and providing adequate treatment or referral services for the patients.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Women's Health Free Clinic (WHFC) as a volunteer physician, please note that you must be a currently practicing internal medicine, family medicine, or ob/gyn physician. Furthermore, you must have your own abortion coverage.
The NYCFC operates every Saturday from 9am to 3pm. There is no required time commitment. Ideally, we prefer that volunteer physicians work about one 3-4 hour shift (half of the Saturday clinic session) per month so that they become familiar with how the clinic runs and build an effective working relationship with the students. However, we can appreciate the busy life of the physician and your commitment can be as much or as little as your interest and schedule allow.
If you are a board-certified, NYU-affiliated physician licensed to practice in the state of New York and you are interested in volunteering or have questions about the clinic, please contact:
Derek Freitas, Director of Development e-mail: email@example.com
If you are an NYU-affiliated undergraduate or NYU-affiliated post-baccalaureate student interested in volunteering or have questions about the clinic, please contact:

We are currently NOT taking undergraduate volunteers. Please check back later for future opportunities.
Please note that we would like all undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students to make at least a one year committment. Our current policy does not allow non-NYU-affiliated undergraduate and non-NYU-affiliated post-baccalaureate students to volunteer with the NYC Free Clinic.
