Rowan Community Health Center

Rowan Community Health Center is a free clinic based in Lindenwold, NJ. Student volunteers and physicians from RowanSOM staff the clinic. The center is a great opportunity to engage with the local community and begin your career as a medical professional.

Who is eligible to volunteer?

All interested RowanSOM students are eligible and encouraged to volunteer at least once in their medical school career!

What students can expect to do as volunteers?

This volunteer opportunity provides a hands-on health care experience. Students triage patients, take vitals and gather a history. First and second year students are paired with third and fourth year students and take a full HPI and set of vitals.

In addition to medical care, our volunteers also learn about the medical profession through: translation for non-English speaking patients, completion of administrative work, scheduling follow-up appointments, calling for referrals, and assembling and disassembling the clinic each day. Most importantly, our student physicians are able to practice their medical skills in a professional setting, learning about the community while providing a valuable service to those who need it most.
