University of Tennessee Health Science Center - Community Engaged Care: Using GivePulse to manage clinical sites (GivePulse Showcase )


As part of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center's Community Engaged Care program, UTHSC students, faculty, and staff worked together with three other local colleges and the general public to administer COVID-19 tests and vaccinations throughout Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee. As the state of Tennessee's flagship academic health sciences center, UTHSC stepped up to lead this effort and provided the logistical support to organize over 5,000 volunteers (both clinical and non-clinical) using the GivePulse platform. The standards we have established during COVID-19 will help guide future clinical volunteer events for our students in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, health professions, and research going forward.
