Physicians are a valuable component to our clinic as they serve as teachers and mentors to medical students and to patient advocates. They help facilitate the clinical process, such as guiding medical students in making a correct diagnosis, writing prescriptions for our patients, and providing medical help and advice to medical students.
Please contact our physician scheduling team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering!
Medical Students are exposed to a variety of clinical responsibilities, such as interviewing patients, conducting physical exams, and performing laboratory procedures (blood draw, pap smears, vaccination, etc.). In addition, the medical student also learns more about working with the underserved Asian population.
Please look at our handbook in order to learn more about what you will be doing at clinic.

The term Patient Advocate aptly describes an undergraduate volunteer at the Paul Hom Asian Clinic. Patient Advocates mainly act as translators for predominantly Cantonese, Mandarin, and Vietnamese patients that visit the clinic. They also have a variety of responsibilities such as in taking vital signs, assisting in the dispensing of medications, and assisting medical students with patient care. They continue to play an important role as patient educators and translators for our clinic. In addition, they have the opportunity to learn more about providing social services to the underserved.
