GFMC is proud to have nearly 200 of Greenville County’s best physicians volunteering across our four clinic locations. Physicians typically give 2 - 3 hours of their time on a quarterly basis; however, we also have physicians who choose to serve monthly or weekly. Our most popular times for physicians to see patients are after 5 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays, and during morning hours on Wednesdays. Our volunteer physicians include general and family practitioners, internists, cardiologists, neurologists, nephrologists, podiatrists, orthopedists, surgeons, endocrinologists, dermatologists, ENTs, emergency room physicians, pulmonologists, ophthalmologists, gynecologists, urologists and gastroenterologists. Other health care professionals volunteering in our medical clinic include physical therapists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and residents. Interested medical professionals should contact the Clinical Operations Manager at (864) 232-1470 ext. 32
Nearly 100 dentists currently volunteer at our Downtown Greenville location on a quarterly rotation. Volunteer dentists perform extractions for our patients every Tuesday and Thursday evening. The GFMC dental clinic also utilizes the services of fourth-year MUSC dental students for 12 weeks each fall and spring semester. These students spend their clinical experience performing restorative care for our patients. Interested dental professionals should contact the Dental Assistant at (864) 232-1470 ext. 26 or by email.
Our pharmacy is located at the Main Clinic in Downtown Greenville. The pharmacy dispenses all prescription medications and some over-the-counter medications prescribed by the GFMC staff and volunteers to patients free of charge. Our need for volunteers is greatest on Wednesdays 9:00-3:00 and Tuesday/Thursday afternoons from 4:00-7:00pm. Prospective pharmacists should contact the Volunteer Coordinator by email or by phone (864) 232-1470 ext 35
Registered nurses are the glue that hold our medical clinic together. Most choose to serve weekly, but flexible scheduling is available, especially for those working with an unpredictable hospital schedule. Volunteer nurses are present Mondays 3 – 6 pm for gynecology clinic, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am – noon for general medical and 3 – 7 pm for general and specialty clinics, and on Wednesdays from 9 – 1 pm for general medical clinic. Prospective nursing volunteers should contact the Clinical Operations Manager at (864) 232-1470 ext. 32
Patient Screener/Front Office
Our front office volunteers perform daily patient screening interviews, a core function of theGFMC patient experience. Patients must be qualified for services before every visit with the physician or dentist. We require at least three and as many as ten front office volunteers each day we see patients. Front office volunteers do not need any experience in a medical environment. The only requirements are a detail-oriented approach and a compassionate attitude. Other duties include helping front office staff prepare for upcoming clinics, filing and pulling patient charts, answering phones, reminding patients of upcoming appointments and/or covering the front desk in the absence of a staff member.
We request that all screeners give a minimum of 24 hours notice if they are unable to work their scheduled shift. Prospective non-medical volunteers should contact the Volunteer Coordinator by email, by phone (864) 232-1470, ext. 34 or simply fill out the Volunteer application below.
Dental Assistants and Hygienists
Many of GFMC’s volunteer dentists bring assistants with them, but when they don’t, it’s helpful to have a few of our own to help. Dental assistants are needed during the extraction clinic every Tuesday and Thursday after 5 pm and during the day on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays when MUSC dental students are present for clinicals during the fall and spring semesters.
Many of our patients receive dental hygiene treatment from the Greenville Tech students. The need for additional help is great, especially in the summer. We can usually schedule patients around your availability. Contact us for additional details.
Interested dental assistants and hygienists should contact the Dental Director at (864) 232-1470 ext. 26 or by email.
Special Projects for Church, School & Work Groups
Groups are always welcome to schedule a special project day at GFMC. Projects are always available during the week and can also be scheduled on weekends. Groups can choose to sign up for a one-time project or a longer term project to be completed during repeat visits. Popular projects include cleaning, organizational or administrative projects inside or yard work outside in the spring, summer, and early fall. Organizations can also take up collections for the Clinic. See our "Wish List" for more details. Interested groups should contact the Volunteer Coordinator by email or by phone (864) 232-1470, ext. 35
