Licensed Voluntary Service Provider

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Coachella Valley Volunteers In Medicine healthcare center!
Our ability to provide care is determined by the number of medical providers (MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs) and licensed clinical support volunteers (RNs, LVNs) who give so freely of their time. Before applying, please review the following requirements to be a volunteer.

  1.  All licensed providers, regardless of your profession, must be licensed to practice in the State of California.
  2. All licensed providers are credentialed, a process that can take up to 8 weeks. Generally, you are not allowed to provide care at our Clinic until this process is completed.
  3. Prior to submitting your application, we generally require you to shadow a current provider to experience firsthand some of what you will encounter as a provider.
  4. We require a commitment to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours per month, for a minimum of at least 6 months.
  5. A professional resume, ID, CA Medical License and DEA License (if applicable) will be required after you speak to our representative and complete your required shadow day.
If, after reviewing the above, you decide to proceed with an application, please call
Kristina Banda, Clinical Operations Director at (760) 342-4414, or email her at
