Spring 2022 Care Coordinator Application

Are you an undergraduate (or former student in a gap year) or graduate student who is interested in helping to tackle health disparities in Alachua County? Then this position is for you! Apply to become a volunteer Care Coordinator with the Mobile Outreach Clinic. The roles of a Care Coordinator for this upcoming semester will be mainly based around telecare. You will be expected to be present for two 2-hour shifts per week, where you will call and follow up with patients, addressing their social determinants of health and providing external resources.

You must be available for two separate time slots every week for a total of 4 hours per week. You must also be available for a monthly 2 hour Huddle, which is a meeting for all volunteers to stay current on MOC happenings! We have a minimum three-semester commitment to the program.

MOC is an unparalleled medical experience for anyone interested in becoming a healthcare professional. There are vast opportunities in this organization, including potential leadership, as well as awesome opportunities to network with current healthcare professionals. Above all, you get to help the underserved get the healthcare and resources that they deserve.

Any application submitted past the deadline will not be reviewed so please submit well before the 11:59 PM deadline.

Please note that you are required to have a letter of recommendation (LOR) submitted on your behalf by Sunday, 10/24/2021 at 11:59 PM if you wish to have your application considered. A letter of recommendation should be written by a professional contact who can attest to your character, strengths, work ethic, and motivation. This could be a supervisor (e.g. a high school teacher (for freshmen and sophomores only), school advisor, work manager, volunteer supervisor, athletic coach, non-family or friend supervisor for an organization you partake in) or an academic contact (e.g. class professor, research PI, health care professional that you shadowed, graduate teaching assistant). They should NOT be written by a family member, friend, or coworker.

This LOR must be submitted to mobileclinic@health.ufl.edu by the person who is providing the recommendation. Your recommender’s email subject line must read “Spring 2022 Application LOR First Name Last Name.” The letter of recommendation does NOT need to be written on a formal letterhead and may be written in the body of the email. But, if your letter is attached by PDF or Word document, we ask that your recommender name the file “Spring 2022 Application LOR_First Name Last Name.” Example: Spring 2022 Application LOR_Albert Gator.pdf

We understand that sometimes LORs can be hard to get, so you have extra time after the application deadline to help motivate your recommender to submit their email/letter on your behalf.

Please email our Applications Chair, Tamim Kawakibi at tamimkawakibi@ufl.edu with any questions or concerns regarding the application process.

Good luck to all those who apply and we look forward to reviewing your applications!
