Purpose

MedServe provides a 2-year, full-time, post-college community service fellowship in rural and other underserved community primary care sites in North Carolina. Graduates with a medical-related undergraduate degree get hands-on clinical experience, as well as take on a community role that allows for the understanding of how primary care issues can be addressed outside the walls of a clinic.

Fellows may serve as part of the primary care team in the roles of:

  • Medical scribe
  • Medical assistant
  • Medical interpreter
  • Community health worker
  • Health coach
  • Quality improvement
  • Population health specialist

In additional to the experiential portion of the fellowship, participants will work through a curriculum that includes:

  1. A 2-week training institute
  2. Quarterly skill summits
  3. Mentorships
Eligibility

Eligible applicants are recent college graduates (including graduate students) in medical-related fields who have an interest in attending medical school or in community service in rural and other underserved communities in North Carolina.
