Volunteer Opportunities

  • Supporting a Local Mission

    Caring for Elderly

    Supported by HTPN and Baylor Scott & White Health (BSWH), the Baylor Community Care program designs, implements, and operates innovative strategies that increase access to health services, provide high-quality care and improve health outcomes for medically underserved populations served by Baylor.

    Today, Baylor Community Care consists of nine clinics across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The clinics are staffed by full-time primary care physicians and nurse practitioners that care for over 10,000 underserved patients a year. The VIM program helps support the charity clinics by facilitating HTPN physicians and staff the opportunity to donate time and expertise or engage in other volunteer activities.

    If you are interested in volunteering or accepting uninsured patients, please contact the VIM Program Manager, Cynthia Barrera at cynthia.barrera@baylorhealth.edu.

  • Supporting an International Mission

    African family

    International medical missions offer a powerful and often life-changing experience for participants, helping to reestablish the soul of medicine while being a means for doing valuable and compassionate work. Character qualities developed in international missions translate into better and more compassionate care back home.

    The VIM Committee provides HTPN physicians, APPs and staff the opportunity to take part in this experience and help in the reduction of health disparities worldwide.  The Committee has established the International Medical Mission Trip Scholarship, intended to support this mission in healing the sick and relieving suffering worldwide.  To apply for this $1,500 scholarship, please click here for the scholarship application, fill it out and send via email to Cynthia Barrera at cynthia.barrera@baylorhealth.edu.

    To learn more about international mission opportunities and the International Medical Missions Trip Scholarships, please contact Cynthia Barrera at cynthia.barrera@baylorhealth.edu.
