Mission of Mercy only exists through volunteers. We are humbled by the commitment of so many busy and talented people who unreservedly give their time to staff our clinics. Others drive miles to represent Mission of Mercy in the community, or spend months organizing world-class special events, or selflessly serve on our Board of Directors. Volunteers participate in Mission of Mercy in many different ways and there are opportunities for everyone, including:
Physicians, Dentists and Healthcare Professionals
Mission of Mercy is actively seeking active or retired licensed medical professionals to volunteer at our clinic, or to accept a limited number of pro bono, in-office appointments. We are particularly in need of physicians (internists and specialty), physician assistants, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, pharmacists, dentists or dental assistants.

Volunteers are needed Monday-Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. You can volunteer as little as one day per month in the clinic of your choice. The clinic is scheduled up to six months in advance for easy, long-range planning. Mission of Mercy provides malpractice insurance coverage for medical and dental professionals volunteering at the clinic.
