This provides them with an opportunity to get early exposure to the medical field, learn about how a clinic runs, and experience patient encounters before starting medical school.

UTEP Pre-med student volunteers are in charge of reception and triage. Roles include:

  • Add the patients into the EMR system
  • Record patient vital signs
  • Spanish translation when needed
  • Draw and run labs in-house
  • General patient care

Texas Tech Foster School of Medicine

Medical Student Volunteers

Our medical students are involved in the entire evaluation process of our patients. They perform the initial history and physical exam, present the case to the supervising physician, and, together, this team will come up with a plan to address any complaint that a patient may have. This is an excellent opportunity for medical students to put into practice the skills that they have learned over their years in medical school. It allows them to improve their clinical decision making while also working to make a difference in our patient population.

Medical students from PLFMSOM volunteer every Saturday from 8-12. Med student roles include:

  • Apply diagnostic and clinical reasoning skills
  • Perform history and physical exam
  • Present the case to supervising faculty physicians.
  • Writing the SOAP note in the electronic medical record
  • Draw and run labs in-house
