Bayanihan Clinic would not be capable of providing health services to the underserved communities of the Greater Sacramento area without the dedication of our amazing preceptors. Physicians and residents are a vital component of our clinic, and we are always seeking for more preceptors! We accept volunteers as early as first year residents!
If you would like to learn more about us, ask questions, or if you're interested in joining the team at Bayanihan Clinic as a clinical volunteer, send a copy of your CV to our preceptor coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org

*Note: You can volunteer with us as long as we are able to find a VCF appointed preceptor to assist you, as we need at least one preceptor during Saturday clinics to teach the medical students since we are a teaching clinic.
Scheduling and Logistics:
To be considered an “active” preceptor for the Bayanihan Clinic, you must volunteer once per quarter (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer), or four times per year. However, we understand that physicians are quite busy, and will gladly accept any amount of time that you can afford to volunteer with us. Our clinic opens at 8:00 a.m.; however, we allow the preceptors come in later at 9:00a.m.
