Volunteering @ PFC

How You Can Help

You don't have to have an MD to volunteer (although it wouldn't hurt!). We're looking for physicians, medical students, and undergraduates who are interested in an incredible medical and community experience. You must be affiliated with Stanford (as a student or faculty) to volunteer at Pacific Free Clinic. Please note that we are unable to accept Stanford staff members as volunteers. In general, Stanford affiliation is defined as possession of an active full SUNet ID. Individuals with active full SUNet IDs have an active email address ending in @stanford.edu. Visit https://itservices.stanford.edu/service/accounts/sunetids for more information.
