What is the time commitment?

We ask volunteers to commit to serve 6 months, at least twice monthly, in one of Hope Clinic’s 4-8 hour shifts.   We strive to have volunteers select repeating shifts. We’ve learned that when the same people work the same four to eight-hour shift together, we get incredible results. They build working relationships, improve clinic capacity, and increase overall effectiveness just by getting to know each other. And frankly, they have more fun.

What days of the week and times does the clinic need volunteers?

The clinic is currently open and needing volunteers on Tuesdays (8:45 am -5 pm); Thursdays (7:45 am -5 pm); Fridays (8:45 am -5 pm); and Saturdays (9:45 am – 3 pm).  We are not open on the 5th Saturday of the month and we are now closed on Mondays.

Do I have to speak Spanish?

No, but Spanish-speakers are one of our most valuable resources!  Only our Translators are required to be fluent in Spanish.

Do I have to be a Christian?

While Hope Clinic is a faith-based ministry led by Christians, the only volunteer role where we request you to be a follower of Jesus Christ is the one of Patient Advocate.

How long does volunteer training last?

Once you have provided all requested paperwork/documents, completed our 45-minute Orientation and interview with a Team Lead, if an appropriate volunteer position is available, you will be invited to join the team.  This onboarding process can take up to 2 weeks.  Then, we will schedule you in shadow shifts so you can observe a volunteer doing the same work that you will do. Depending on area of service, a shadow shift may be required 2-4 times before a volunteer can go solo.  After this training is complete, we’ll provide you with a link to VSP – our Volunteer App — which allows you to see and schedule upcoming shifts and request swaps.

Are Medical Volunteers protected against malpractice?

Yes!  Hope Clinic of McKinney provides free medical malpractice insurance for all providers, nurses and techs.

Is Hope Clinic a teaching facility where medical volunteers can accumulate training hours?

No, unfortunately we are not equipped to provide training hours.  However, for those medical professionals who need hours to continue holding their licenses, we can offer a much-needed place to serve and receive these credentials.

What are Hope Clinic's most immediate volunteer needs?

At this time, we are really in need of Spanish-speaking Translators, Patient Advocates and Spanish Speaking Front Desk Personnel.  We also need more Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Medical Assistants, Physician’s Assistants or Doctors that can serve on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays.  And finally, we also need more Licensed Professional Counselors who can volunteer on Wednesdays.

Who oversees the volunteers?

Hope Clinic does have a paid staff that oversee and interact directly with volunteers including a part-time Medical Director/MD, Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Manager, Volunteer Coordinator, and Credentialing Coordinator.  Our full-time staff include the Executive Director of Operations, Executive Director of Development, Director of Patient Services, Medical Assistant and Office Manager.
