2) CFC Medical and Social Wellness Fellowship meetings
The CFC Medical and Social Wellness Fellowship was developed to provide undergraduate fellows with the structure and support to gain valuable clinical experience. The organization will provide fellows with the resources to draw connections with social determinants of health that impact the Franklin County Community. Fellows are encouraged to take initiative as members of the student organization and as a CFC volunteer. Students will gain clinical experience, work with medical professionals, and actively contribute to delivery of health and social services offered by the Columbus Free Clinic.
Meetings for fellows are mandatory. Meetings are currently held every other Tuesday throughout the term.
Please note: Due to the volume of applications and the small number of positions, we will not contact all applicants. Many of our volunteers stay with us longitudinally, so we will only reach out to you if we are in need of filling an empty position. If you do not hear from us, we strongly suggest that you re-apply for the next cycle. Thank you for your interest in helping out at the Columbus Free Clinic!
Note: Volunteer positions are preferentially given to undergraduate students at the Ohio State University who can commit to at least 2 semesters of volunteering.
