The RAM program is a longstanding volunteer opportunity where health care professionals come together and work in a mobile clinic setting. The RAM organization sets up mobile medical centers at fairgrounds, schools and arenas in order to provide the underserved in impoverished areas in the United States with general medical, dental, vision and preventive care and education. This experience is only available to senior nursing students.
Experience is coordinated with the UB Dental School, which has a longstanding commitment to this organization.
Students are responsible for their expenses. Costs will include
transportation and lodging with some meals provided. One
independent study credit is required that will allow UB School of
Nursing to provide insurance and supervision. You may be able to
use financial aid to assist in covering your expenses; please see
your financial aid advisor for assistance.
Hotel lists will be provided. Some hotels provide discounted lodging. Generally students will be expected to share four to reduce costs. Volunteers will be notified of hotel options after registration.
Students are responsible for their own transportation, and should plan together how they will travel. SON will help to coordinate travel with the Dental School.
After returning from the trip, you will receive $250 in your UB student account to help reimburse some of the expenses.
To apply, submit your updated resume to Jackie Markek at email@example.com.
AFTER you have registered with our office, you will register as a volunteer on the Remote Area Medical USA website.
