Vida Mobile Clinic

Student Health Career Volunteer Program 

Vida Mobile Clinic believes in the importance of mentoring future generations. Vida Mobile Clinic's student volunteer program is geared towards individuals interested in the field of health and encourages 1st generation college graduates to pursue a professional degree in medicine. Through this program,  college or high school students gain patient care experience and have the opportunity to shadow a health care provider in the clinical setting. This program is focused on helping those who lack clinical experience and would like the opportunity to receive mentorship on pursuing a health profession. 


*DUE TO COVID-19, VIDA HAS POSTPONED THIS PROGRAM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.*


This opportunity is open to students 15 years of age and older.

Vida kindly asks for a commitment of a minimum of five hours a month.

Vida is very proud of helping future clinicians obtain their goal, and we ask that you pay it forward to future generations when you become a healthcare provider. To apply, please email us a summary of why you are interested in this program and send a CV to [email protected]
