Medical Reserve Corps
If you are a medical professional, and would like to volunteer to help during a health-related emergency, you may be interested in joining the Medical Reserve Corp (MRC).
The mission of the Clackamas County Medical Reserve Corps is to establish and maintain a pool of licensed or certified health and medical professionals to provide surge capacity during large-scale public health crises, and to support local public health initiatives. Medical licenses from the State Board of Nursing, the Oregon Board of Pharmacy and the Oregon Medical Board are accepted at present.
The State of Oregon has a related State Emergency Registry of Volunteers in Oregon (SERV-OR) which accepts a broader range of medical licenses.
To apply for either or both registries, go to SERV-OR and complete the online application.
We partner with the county’s Disaster Management Department and with public and private agencies throughout the region on health-related issues during emergencies. For more information, visit the county's Disaster Management page.
