Health Outreach Program (HOP) Physician Volunteers Needed
Calling all physicians! Drexel Med’s Health Outreach Program (HOP) is looking for new physicians to volunteer in our clinics. These clinics are student-run and designed to support the underserved population in and around Philadelphia. They also serve to provide students with a safe environment to practice interviewing and case presentation skills. There are three clinics that rely on physician support in order to operate:
- Eliza Shirley, Wednesdays, 6:30–8:30 p.m. — serves women and children
- SalVal clinic, Tuesdays, 7–10 p.m. — serves mostly veterans
- Streetside clinic, Fridays, 12–4:30 p.m. ― serves the impoverished in the Kensington neighborhood of Philly. Also functions as a needle exchange.
- Service at HOP is completely voluntary.
- The clinic schedule for the month is sent out and physicians can simply sign up for dates that fit their schedule.
- Physicians can sign up as often or as little as they please.
- At clinic, students will conduct the interview of patients and present the case to the physician. The physician will then take over the care of the patient and provide feedback to students on their interviewing and case presenting proficiency.
We have a dedicated team of physicians with a passion for teaching and service. If being a part of this incredible team interests you, please contact our physician recruitment chair, Janson Jacob, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
