About Us

The Organization  

MedServe is a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve the health of medically underserved communities while exposing tomorrow’s most promising future providers to primary care practice in a way that inspires them to be life-long champions of health equity. As an AmeriCorps program, MedServe connects recent college graduates with a 2-year paid service-learning fellowship in primary care medicine in clinics across North Carolina (from the mountains to the beach).


The MedServe Model

MedServe's model consists of a three-pronged approach: match, immerse, and support.

  • MATCH - MedServe Fellows are recent college graduates who have completed a pre-medical curriculum and are taking time off before medical school. Our fellows are bright, service-minded, and eager to learn.
  • IMMERSE - We recruit clinic partners, who are primary care practices leading innovative community health initiatives. Fellows spend two years as full-time, active helpers in these communities. Fellows' roles are designed to meet human capital needs in the community to ensure that fellows are transforming not only themselves but also the health of the community.
  • SUPPORT - MedServe Fellows undergo a rigorous two week Training Institute to prepare for their roles. In addition, we host quarterly skill summits across the state to expose students to key medical concepts and help them prepare for the next stage of their medical education.


Become a Fellow - applications for the 2021 Fellowship Cohort can be submitted from Oct 1st, 2020 - Feb 15th 2021.

Host a Fellow - join our team of 'rock-star' clinics!
