About the Team

Mass General Brigham's mobile medical Community Care Vans bring a broad menu of mobile medical services, including screenings and interventions for chronic health issues like hypertension, diabetes, and substance use disorders. The Community Care Vans, originally deployed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, are staffed with multilingual and multicultural clinicians and support staff to better connect with the communities served by Mass General Brigham.

In January of 2021, Mass General Brigham launched a fleet of Community Care Vans in our local communities hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic, providing COVID testing, vaccines, and reliable health information to patients and residents. Information and resources were provided in a variety of languages along with care kits containing items like masks and hand sanitizer. As of May 2022, the Community Care Vans had administered more than 17,900 vaccines to community residents. To address social determinants of health, patients are screened for issues related to housing, access to healthy food, and personal safety, and connected with relevant resources.

Now, as COVID-19 transitions from an acute pandemic to a more endemic state, the Mass General Brigham mobile medical Community Care Vans will also evolve to meet people where they are.

Position Overview

The Medical Assistant is an integral member of the mobile health team that is dedicated to increasing access to quality healthcare for vulnerable communities in the greater Boston area. Mobile health services are specialized by “clinic” and include COVID-19 testing and vaccination, hypertension screening/treatment, and substance use disorder screening/treatment.

Under the direction of the Clinical Lead or other provider, the Medical Assistant is responsible for assisting physicians, nurse practitioners, and/or nurses with evaluation, management, and treatment of patients who seek care at one of the mobile clinics. His/her primary roles are to register patients in the electronic medical record system; to assure efficient patient flow; to assist providers within the scope of the MA skill set; to maintain neat, clean, and safe patient care areas, and to promote patient satisfaction by interacting with patients in a professional, friendly manner consistent with their needs.

Hours/Schedule

We are seeking a Medical Assistant to support the mobile van between 24-40 hours per week, depending on new hire preference/availability. This position entails a significant amount of time in a mobile/community environment. While much of the work may take place on the mobile clinic (van) there are duties performed outside and adjacent to the mobile clinic. It will be necessary to dress for varying weather conditions as needed. The position requires the ability to commute to and from site locations and also work remotely as required. The van is typically out in the field on Tuesdays from 9:00am to 6:00pm, Wednesdays from 8:00am to 12:00pm, and Fridays from 8:00am to 12:00pm or 1:00pm to 5:00pm. We need a Medical Assistant to help us in the field, as well as flexibility to work outside of normal hours (such as evenings/weekends) to respond to scheduled community events.
