Phillips Neighborhood Clinic Student Volunteer Application 2018
Thank you for applying to the Phillips Neighborhood Clinic! We are a free clinic, operated under the leadership of University of Minnesota students. The mission of the Phillips Neighborhood Clinic (PNC) is three-fold:

•We will develop compassionate, culturally competent future health professionals in an interprofessional, team-based learning environment
•We will support community partnerships and promote overall health and wellbeing in the communities we serve
•We will increase accessibility of comprehensive, patient-centered, quality health services to patients with unmet needs

The PNC provides an array of services including medical care, nursing care, physical therapy, pharmaceutical care, dispensing pharmacy services, mental health, dental, nutrition and public health services in order to decrease fragmentation of services and referral needs. Finally, the PNC provides a safe, therapeutic environment for our clients with respect for their diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds.

The PNC also provides a unique and safe environment for allied health professional students to volunteer, learn, and assess the needs of patients in the community. The opportunity for students to work with a vulnerable and underserved population in conjunction with other students from a variety of disciplines has proven to be an invaluable experience for PNC volunteers. Volunteering at the PNC not only increases a volunteer’s understanding of the roles each discipline has in health care, but it also helps students learn how to effectively work in an interprofessional environment.

This application consists of two parts.

1) Form
This form asks a few simple questions about you and your interest in the PNC. It also contains information about the PNC, the application process, positions available, and volunteer expectations. It is important to review and know this information. Please direct any further questions you may have to Caroline Patz at The deadline for filling out this application is **Wednesday, September 19th at 11:59 PM**.

2) Interview
At the end of this form you will be asked to sign up for an interview in a separate Google Sheet. The interview is a mandatory part of the volunteer application, and will take place on the East Bank of the Minneapolis campus (within the AHC classroom complex) during the days and early evenings of September 20-28. Each interview is schedule for 30 minutes. Please e-mail Caroline at if you are unable to find an available interview time slot for your schedule, and we can work with you to make sure that you have an interview time. Potential volunteers who can interpret in Spanish may be asked to take a simple spoken language evaluation during their interview.

Applicants will be informed of their status by the end of the day on Friday, October 5th.

Those accepted will be required to attend a 2-hour mandatory orientation on **Saturday, October 13th.** Please keep that date available in your schedule. (To facilitate scheduling, you will submit session preferences at a separate link at the end of this application.)

Additionally, all new volunteers will have a 1-2 hour on-campus classroom training session with your role coordinator that will likely take place between October 15th and 26th. Further details will be provided.

Thank you, and we look forward to meeting with you soon!
