IU Student Outreach Clinic Sub-Committees
All current medical students at IU School of Medicine who are interested in participating in the IU Student Outreach Clinic have the opportunity to join one of several clinic sub-committees. These sub-committees individually address a key component that helps the clinic to operate smoothly, ultimately improving patient outcome.
The Operations Committee helps to write policies and procedures for various aspects of the IU Student Outreach Clinic including general and administrative policies, emergency management, medical records and supplies, human resources and patient care. This sub-committee is well suited for individuals who enjoy working on projects and his or her own pace, are well organized, and are looking for a way to help build the foundation of the clinic.
The Volunteer Committee is composed of two subcommittees: faculty and student. These subcommittees help organize volunteer efforts at the IU Student Outreach Clinic, as well as recruit new IUSOC members. Faculty volunteer coordinators should be at least a third-year medical student or someone who is familiar with faculty members. Student volunteer coordinators can be from any class. Contact the the outreach clinic team to get involved.
The Promotions Committee manages publicizing the clinic as well as continuing outreach to the community. This include website content maintainence, promotional video production, working with IU School of Medicine Visual Media to construct outdoor signage and for photography, and alumni relations. Contact the the outreach clinic team to get involved.
The Development Committee manages fundraising for the clinic, grant writing and budgeting/planning fund usage.
The Supplies Committee manages the purchasing of new medical equipment, handling donations and maintaining organized inventory. Contact the the outreach clinic team to get involved.
The Education Committee is responsible for incorporating medical student education and curriculum into the clinic. This includes Competency Six: Social and Community Contexts of Health Care, Competency Eight: Problem Solving, and MS1 week one basic skills. This committee is also responsible for monthly health education (i.e. diabetes, asthma) and for running an annual school drive for books.
