Rfpc Volunteer Intern (quality Improvement/medical Scribe)

San Francisco Health Network

Aug. 1, 2019, 3 a.m. - July 31, 2020, 3 a.m. EDT

Who Are We? The Richard Fine People's Clinic or RFPC is a primary care clinic that is part of the San Francisco Health Network. We are one of the largest clinics that serve underprivileged and vulnerable populations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our providers see around 8,000+ patients and our population is incredibly diverse and complex. We are located on the first floor of the old hospital building of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Volunteer InternshipWe are looking for current students (or recent grads) that have a strong interest in primary care and of serving vulnerable populations. Our past interns have either been Pre-Medical, Pre-Health Sciences, or Post-Baccalaureate students. We have two types of positions available--quality improvement (QI) and medical scribing. Our QI Interns work on various topics and metrics with our quality improvement team. Examples of topics are women's health, geriatrics, and patient advisory board. For students that want a more clinical internship, our medical scribes work 1:1 with our providers during their clinic sessions. RequirementsWe ask that all volunteers commit to a one year (10-12 month) duration and that they come in 2 days/week (8-15 hours). However, we understand that students are busy with their coursework and other academic and professional development obligations. Depending on the topic and work needed, the hours are negotiable.

Virtual Volunteer Job Tutor

Per Scholas

Flexible times and locations

Corporate and job volunteers play a critical role in Per Scholas training. Even when you can't be present physically, you can give back by volunteering to help aspiring technologists improve their communication skills, learn about key technical content, and better understand the corporate landscape to secure a job and progress in their career. Per Scholas virtual volunteers can help community members with: 1. Mock interviews. Volunteers will have the chance to virtually review a student's resume, interview them for a "mock" position and give them feedback after completing the interview. This gives students the opportunity to practice and refine their interview skills and build confidence in their abilities. 2. Virtual Lunch. Volunteers will virtually "sit" down with a student they are paired with, eat lunch, and discuss their experiences at work as well as give career advice. During the lunch, volunteers can provide insight on their technical skills, social and emotional intelligence at work, and career pathways. Through this interaction, our students are able to learn more about a corporate environment and gain valuable practice networking with a professional. 3. Resume Review. Volunteers will virtually discuss the importance of a resume and cover letter when applying for a job, review and give feedback on the student's resume, and assist with editing a future iteration of the document. Opportunities are available virtually to support Per Scholas community members and job seekers in different cities and communities. Volunteers must have some real-world job experience and training in order to guide and help other job-seekers and career aspirations learn and improve. Hiring manager, human resources (HR), and/or tech experience in particular are recommended.

Go Carbon Neutral

Brightest (Climate)

Flexible times and locations

When we started Brightest we made two simple commitments to ourselves and you: anytime someone completed an act of good or volunteer shift through Brightest, we'd plant a tree. Second, we'd operate as a net zero carbon (CO2) service, offsetting all our servers, travel, and anything else we use to run our website and build our community. Thanks to the commitment of our climate community (and people like you), we've already planted over 10,000 new trees, capturing more than a hundred tons of CO2 this year. All thanks to individual acts of good adding up to big change. Now, with your help, we're taking our tree projects and sustainability commitment to the next level with a new service: a Zero Carbon Living tree-planting offset subscription. Using our existing project and partner infrastructure, each month we plant plant trees and invest in carbon-neutralizing clean energy and waste projects on behalf of our members, then verify the work to report back impact, allowing you to go carbon neutral (or gift zero carbon living to a friend) for less than the price of a weekly coffee ☕ While we don't think this alone will solve the climate crisis (one of the many reasons we provide digital infrastructure and tools to groups like Fridays for Future, XR, and Sunrise Movement), little differences DO add up when we spread the word and work together. To illustrate this, if every Spotify or Netflix customer went carbon-zero, it would carbon offset the environmental footprint of a country the size of Australia or Brazil. If you'd like to help us reach our next planting target of 1 million trees, we'd be extremely grateful, and you can start right here. Your contribution to plant trees and go carbon neutral is tax deductible. Trees planted through Brightest are planted in partnership with The Brightest Foundation Incorporated, a registered US 501(c)(3) public charity, EIN 83-3516335, alongside our local reforestation partner network. Your contribution to plant trees and offset your carbon footprint with us is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S law.
