Medical Volunteers Needed

Become a medical volunteer

Medical volunteers are urgently needed to respond to the spread of COVID-19 in Vermont. If you are a health care, mental health or other clinical professional or have health care administrative experience (translators, medical data entry), or have experience working with displaced people, then Vermont's Medical Reserve Corp needs you.

Vermont has eased licensing requirements for the purposes of aiding this emergency response. Physicians, physician assistants, and podiatrists can learn more about emergency licensure at the Board of Medical Practice. Other medical professionals, including nurses and osteopathic physicians, can learn more at the Secretary of State's Office of Regulations.
