Healthcare Volunteering

Volunteering offers students an opportunity to comfort those in need, make a difference in the community, network with other students and professionals, and improve necessary skills for being a successful healthcare provider such as communication and interpersonal skills.  Students are encouraged to get exposure in a diverse array of healthcare fields and should choose opportunities and experiences based on their unique interests, abilities, and qualifications.

Various hospitals offer programs to individuals that will assist them in gaining exposure to the healthcare environment.

It is encouraged you find an experience that is convenient and allows you to maintain a balance in your academic and co-curricular endeavors.
