Students Volunteer at Hospitals
March 16, 2009
Students volunteering their time at hospitals provides an educational experience and helps them explore a career in the medical field. There are a variety of volunteer positions available from nursing units, information desks, the ER or at the gift shop.
No matter what their age, volunteers help save money. Last year, volunteers at Memorial helped save the hospital $996,000, according to Trammell. “They are extremely helpful,” Trammell says. “The amount they save for the hospital is priceless.”
Volunteering provides services to the hospital but is also a great way for students to learn more about the industry, explore a career in healthcare, learn new skills and have fun while helping others.
To learn more about student volunteering, contact your local hospital and inquire about volunteer services.
