Other Volunteer Opportunities

Medical Reserve Corps

The University of Minnesota Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) program is part of a national initiative to mobilize and coordinate volunteers at the local level to assist in the event of a public health crisis or large scale disaster. The MRC program provides a structure to pre- identify, train, credential and organize medical and public health professionals, as well as non-clinical personnel to supplement and support health emergency response systems. At the U of M any student, faculty, or staff member in the Health Sciences, Boynton Health, or mental health professional in Student Counseling Services is welcome to join the program.

MN COVIDsitters

This ad-hoc volunteer group is a student-run team from Twin Cities colleges and universities. They support local healthcare workers by offering free childcare, petsitting, and household management services. Their team provides services to healthcare workers — anyone from resident physicians to the remarkable humans who work to keep our hospitals clean. Their goal is to help offset the impact of school closures and increased work demands on healthcare workers, and they hope other healthcare students will take the initiative to work within their communities to develop similar services for local care team members, too.
