Volunteer Opportunities

SERV-OR and Retired Physicians

Thank you for your interest in SERV-OR. We have a tremendous response from the medical community seeking volunteer opportunities Our State Managed Volunteer Pool (SMVP) has opportunities for physicians who may not meet the OMB requirements and have been retired fewer than ten years to serve in the SMVP – Previously Licensed Pool. This volunteer registry has some additional requirements and trainings, including a background check. 

When individuals create profiles and apply to SERV-OR, anyone who does not have a valid and active license to practice clinically should self-select the SMVP – Previously Licensed Pool. If any members have valid and active licenses, they should apply to the regular SMVP. 

We are also conscious of risks that our volunteers face. We follow the CDC’s guidance for people who are at a higher risk for severe illnesses, including COVID-19, when assigning folks to volunteer roles. If someone is high-risk, we ask that they decline the mission and wait for a more suitable opportunity. The roles depend on community needs and requests. Volunteer roles have ranged from setting up medical equipment to staffing a temporary field hospital. There will likely be many opportunities for people to serve in low-risk situations, like staffing call centers. Overall, volunteers are not required to accept a mission if they have health concerns or are uncomfortable with the mission plans. 

Additionally, the Oregon Medical Board website provides some guidance on how retired and out of state physicians can be reactivated in an emergency situation. Please check out their website here to see if members fall under their guidelines. They will reactivate physicians and PAs who were in clinical practice within the previous three years but who no longer hold an active medical license. You can find that application here: https://www.oregon.gov/omb/OMBForms1/Emergency%20Reactivation%20Application.pdf
