Student Volunteer Program
Volunteer Services Student Program Coordinator works to make your
volunteering experience a valuable asset towards your career
goals. Over 300 volunteer positions offer opportunities for
students to explore various healthcare-related options. Each year
up to 10 student volunteers are selected to win awards, in which
winners are announced late each spring at a special event.
