Health Outreach Partnership of EVMS Students

We are an organization that works to staff and run a free clinic for the underserved population of Norfolk. We currently operate every Wednesday and Thursday from 6-10 pm at the Norfolk Public Health Building, where we see uninsured patients of Norfolk on an appointment-only basis with attending physician supervision. Being student-run means that we rely completely on students to help us staff and run the clinic--both in and out of clinical hours.

The clinic is open over spring break and summer break.  We are closed for:
1. Major holidays, such as July 4 which falls on a Thursday in 2013
2. Thanksgiving week
3. The last two weeks of the year

We host orientation lectures periodically (at least once each semester) to introduce new students to the clinic format--once you've completed orientation you can sign up to volunteer.

How to Volunteer

HOPES requires volunteers to attend an info session, where we walk you through how the clinic works. Students in MD/PA programs, who have completed their Family Medicine or Internal Medicine rotations, can work as senior clinicians.  MD/PA students can work as junior clinicians starting in their second semester.  All students are welcome to work the clinic front desk.  We frequently have projects, in and out of the clinic, for which we separately recruit volunteers from all EVMS programs.

To get a junior clinician or front desk shift at HOPES:
1. Attend an info session
2. Register for the shift lottery
3. If you get a shift, treat it like a required class session.  You are representing EVMS.
4. If you don't get a shift, watch the waitlist tab on the master schedule.
