Community Faculty

Volunteer faculty contribute substantially to the programs of MCW without pay. Individuals appointed as volunteer faculty are expected to contribute to institutional success in one or more of MCW's core missions. All educators are required to obtain a volunteer adjunct faculty appointment at MCW.

Below are volunteer opportunities in Family & Community Medicine. Program contact information is listed below. Today’s Medical Students are Tomorrow’s Family Physicians (PDF).

A terminal degree in the field of appointment is usually expected for individuals who are not clinical practitioners. Consideration may be given on a case by case basis to the appointment of individuals who do not have either a license or a terminal degree if their appointment can be persuasively demonstrated to be MCW mission critical.

  • A letter of support from the chair or institute director as detailed above
