University Pre-Health Students

Are you enrolled in pre-health major? Student volunteers gain valuable exposure to the clinical environment while earning hours required for application to specific programs. Students perform a variety of tasks including stocking supplies, assembling patient charts, and other duties as assigned by staff. We welcome students who are seeking a healthcare-related degree and have attained at least sophomore standing with a GPA of 3.0 or greater.  This program runs throughout the traditional school year with the option to volunteer during the summer. If brought on as a sophomore or junior, there are options to continue through graduation. When applying for the traditional school year term, a two-semester commitment is required. Opportunities are available in several clinical areas of the hospital including Same Day Surgery, Medical-Surgical/Intensive Care Unit, BirthPlace, and Emergency Department.  This program runs throughout the traditional school year, with orientation and onboarding starting in August, and running until the end of Spring semester in May.
