LICENSED HEALTHCARE VOLUNTEERS

COVID-19 UPDATE 

4/2/20 

The County of Marin Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is activated to support COVID-19 response. We are accepting new volunteers into our Marin County Unit. At this time, our priority is to accept licensed healthcare professionals to support medical surge. If you are interested in volunteering, please carefully read the volunteer eligibility recruitment and registration process.

Questions: mmrc@marincounty.org 

ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for COVID-19 emergency medical staffing roles, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Under age 65 per guidance issued by Marin County's Public Health Officer 
  • Have a valid California License for clinical practice 
  • Have no negative licensure/certification actions 

If you are not a healthcare professional and would like to help with our community’s COVID-19 response, please visit the Center for Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership: https://cvnl.org/volunteerism/disaster-services/

REGISTRATION

All volunteers must register on the California Disaster Healthcare Volunteers (DHV) website.

  1. Visit: https://www.healthcarevolunteers.ca.gov/
  2. Click “Register Now” tab at the top of the page:
    • Select "Add organizations" then “County Organizations”
    • Find and select “Marin County”
  3. Once you are registered, you will be contacted if your skills meet the needs of the operation.

DHV Tips:

  • During the on-line registration process, you will be asked to enter information regarding your license (if applicable). It’s important that you fill out all fields so your profile is 100% complete.
  • Enter information about the best way to contact you, and other relevant background information.
  • Once you've registered, your credentials will be validated - before an emergency - so that you can be deployed quickly and efficiently. Your information will only be viewed by authorized system managers.

CALIFORNIA HEALTH CORPS (CHC)

On Monday 3/30, at the direction of the CA Governor’s Office, the DHV system was temporarily redirected for mass hiring of paid medical professionals to support California’s response efforts to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The County Units and MRC Units were temporarily hidden from the DHV landing page and all prospective volunteers were channeled to the CHC. The County Units and MRC Units are now visible in the DHV System again and we can move forward with normal use of the system. 

If you registered for the newly-formed California Health Corps but you want to volunteer locally for Marin County, please email MMRC@marincounty.org and we will transfer your account from the CHC to the Marin County Unit.

DEPLOYMENT 

Registration in the DHV system does not guarantee a volunteer deployment. Volunteers are not to self-deploy and must be scheduled and confirmed through a representative from the County of Marin.

Steps to deploy: 

  1. Receive Disaster Healthcare message from the County of Marin requesting availability. 
  2. Receive assignment confirmation from a County of Marin employee. Volunteers are not to self-deploy.
  3. Receive just-in-time training and sign confidentiality agreement.
  4. Take the Disaster Service Workers (DSW) Oath.
