JOIN. PROVIDE. OUTREACH. EXPERIENCE.
Are you interested in the opportunity to give back to your community? To serve those in need? While gaining Clinical and Professional Experience?
Then the International Collegiate Health Initiative (ICHI) is right for you!
We are a student-run 501 (c)3 non-profit organization based in UCLA that strives to provide medical and nutritional services to immigrants, refugees, low-income families, and individuals experiencing homelessness in Southeast Los Angeles.
Currently, our main project focuses on running our sanctuary Mobile Community Health Clinic and Telehealth System in the Southeast Los Angeles cities of Maywood and Bell. Working alongside physicians, nurses, and medical students, ICHI operates multiple health fairs to provide health screenings and health education services throughout the year. In addition to our in-person opportunities, ICHI also runs multiple telehealth services such as our Prescription Medication Assistance Program (PMAP), video appointments with health professionals, and providing Covid-19 at-home test kits. If you are interested in gaining experience in medicine, social services, and business development while creating innovative, high-impact projects across Los Angeles, keep an eye out for our next recruitment cycle!
