Volunteer or Work-Study Opportunities
Part-Time, Volunteer Navigators - Behavioral Health Screening in Primary Care
Integrating behavioral health into primary care remains a national agenda. With funding from the National Institute of Drug Abuse, the Center for Family Intervention Science at the College of Nursing & Health Professions and Family Medicine at the College of Medicine are collaborating on a project focused on screening adult patients for mental health and substance use and then referring those in need for services.
We are seeking advanced undergraduate and graduate students in a public health/behavioral health field (public health, social work, psychology, counseling, family therapy, etc.) interested in volunteering as health care navigators. The position involves working with providers and staff at family medicine practices to help screen patients in the waiting room, assist patients with finding appropriate services after the medical visit, and call patients after the referral process to followup.
Volunteer navigators will work on-site (locations vary; travel compensation possible).
All volunteers must commit to at least 8 hours per week for the entire school year, attend a one day training in October, and attend weekly one hour supervision (in-person or via conference call). Opportunities for integrating class projects or thesis work are available. If you are interested, please send your CV to the Project Coordinator, Jesse Smith, at email@example.com.
Positions for this project are available as long as this posting is listed.
