Medical and Specialty Providers provide primary health care during clinic hours. All providers must be licensed and have malpractice insurance.*
*Note: For licensed volunteers who do not have malpractice insurance, it is available free of charge through Western Washington Area Health Education Center (AHEC). PSCC will assist our volunteer providers in obtaining this insurance. If you are retired and your license has not lapsed, AHEC will also pay for your license renewal fee.

Nurses provide nursing services to patients during clinic hours and assist with special events like health fairs and screenings in the community. RNs and LPNs are needed. All nurses must be licensed and have malpractice insurance.
Patient schedulers ensure that our patients secure an appointment. Patients call a clinic phone number and leave a detailed message. Patient schedulers return these phone calls within 24 hours, screen patients for eligibility, ensure the care they are seeking is available at PSCC and then schedule the patient accordingly. These volunteers should have excellent phone skills, patience, and the ability to work with diverse populations over the phone.
Case Managers help our patients access lab tests, diagnostic tests, and specialty care.  Volunteer opportunities for this position occur during both clinic and non-clinic hours.  Generally, case managers are nurses or have some medical background.
Pharmacists, Pharmacy technicians, and Patient Advocates help our patients access lower cost prescription medications. Most often, this involves helping the patient to complete the Patient Assistance Program (PAP) forms necessary to obtain medications through pharmaceutical companies. Patient advocates must possess basic computer skills, be detail-oriented, work well with others, and have a desire to serve.
Spiritual Care volunteers serve during clinic hours and address our patients’ holistic needs. Primary responsibilities include listening to patient concerns, praying with patients, and connecting patients with assistance programs within his/her community (i.e. food banks, shelter, utility bill assistance programs, etc.). Spiritual Care volunteers should be kind and compassionate, comfortable sharing their hope and faith in Jesus Christ, and willing to pray with people.
The Site Coordinator is a liaison between PSCC and the church site from which the mobile clinic operates in a given community. Responsibilities of the Site Coordinator include communication with partner churches in the community, ensuring smooth operations of the clinic, and scheduling volunteers for the clinic at their assigned site. Each site has two to three coordinators who partner with each other. 
There are many tasks that must get done both prior to and after clinic hours. Many off-site opportunities are available, including computer/tech assistance, meal preparation, and administrative assistance.
