Health Outreach Partnership of EVMS Students

We are a student organization that runs a free clinic for the underserved population of Norfolk. 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.
When: Every Wednesday and Thursday from 6-10 pm
Where: Norfolk Public Health Building

The clinic is open over spring break and summer break.
We are closed for:
1. Major holidays, such as July 4
2. Thanksgiving week
3. Two weeks during Winter Break
How to Volunteer
We host Info Sessions (at least once each semester) to introduce new students to the clinic format. HOPES requires volunteers to attend an info session, where we walk you through how the clinic works.
To get a Junior Clinician, Front Desk, or Chart Review shift at HOPES:
1. Attend an info session
2. Wait for a email to sign up a shift
3. If you have a shift, treat it like a required class session.  You are representing EVMS
Senior Clinicians Students in MD/PA programs, who have completed their Family Medicine or Internal Medicine and/or Ob/Gyn rotations, can work as senior clinicians.  
Junior Clinicians - MD/PA students can work as junior clinicians starting in their second semester.
