Internship Placement Program Internship Spotlight: Charlottesville Free Clinic

Charlottesville Free Clinic Internship Opportunity - UVA Career Center's Internship Placement Program

The Charlottesville Free Clinic serves the greater Charlottesville region. We are a volunteer community health support system that provides high quality health care to the "working insured" who would otherwise have no access to care. The Free Clinic encourages early intervention, primary care visits, and follow-up, saving both lives and dollars.

Our volunteers (doctors, nurses, patient educators, and pharmacists) provide treatment at no cost to the patients. Part of our mission is to educate young health care providers, who work under the supervision of a fully licensed practitioner. Another aspect of our mission is to accumulate information in support of a comprehensive policy for access to health care.

The IPP intern will work closely with the Director of Patient Care, the Patient Services Coordinator, and the Social Worker, assisting with patient contact about mental-health appointments and and lab follow-up; quality assurance and chart auditing; maintenance of a referral database; and other projects as needed. This position requires an individual with excellent attention to detail and sensitivity for personal and confidential information.
