Crews n Healthmobile
On the Crews’n Healthmobile, you will be assisting the on-board medical team in delivering healthcare to an extremely vulnerable population. The Healthmobile caters to homeless youth, located either in homeless shelters without medical facilities or right out on the street. The clinic-on-wheels is led by Dr. Lara Yoblonski, and is staffed with medical practitioners, nurses, and case managers from Phoenix Children's Hospital. Services include the full spectrum of a "medical home," such as:
- Full examinations and well-child care
- Dispensing of medications
- Treatment of STIs
- Minor surgical procedures
- Health education
- Referrals to sub-specialists if needed
What do I need to wear/bring to the clinic?
For clinic, please wear business casual and bring your stethoscope. No white coat. Please wear PCH medical student ID and closed-toe shoes at all times.
You may bring study materials as long as they do not interfere with volunteering activities. There is often time between patients to study.
What if I need to cancel a shift?
If you are unable to attend a shift you signed up for, please remove yourself from the sign up. Please remove yourself as soon as possible so others may sign up. It reflects poorly on CHIP students if the health center is expecting a student who does not attend their shift. Please remember that if you sign up for a shift and neglect to cancel or find someone to take your place at least 24 hours in advance, you will be docked that number of hours. Please email Joseph Neely ([email protected]) at least 24 hours before your scheduled shift if there is a problem. CHIP hours will be entered within 30 days.
