Free Health Care Programs Directory

Compiled by MMS Committee on Senior Volunteer Physicians

MMS senior members have served at Free Health Care Programs for over 20 years as volunteers in underserved communities and/or provide oversight and mentoring of medical students. The locations span from Cape Cod to Western Massachusetts.

MMS members who are age 60 and over, fully retired with active medical licenses can apply for the volunteer program. As part of the application process, members can apply for professional liability insurance if coverage is not available to them.

If you have questions or interested in volunteering at a program below or elsewhere, please contact Chew-Hoong Koh, staff liaison, at ckoh@mms.org or (781) 434-7312.
