The Clinic’s prestigious volunteer providers are primarily from leading healthcare institutions in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, including Baylor College of Medicine, Houston Methodist, MD Anderson, Memorial Hermann, and others. These healthcare services were provided through the considerable contributions of San José Clinic’s volunteers that work alongside Clinic staff to provide an array of services to those in need. Are you ready to be a San José Clinic Volunteer? 


Volunteer positions at San José Clinic vary widely, from direct service providers like doctors to non-clinical volunteers like medical interpreters and administrative support. We have three main types of volunteers: high-need clinical, clinical, and non-clinical.
