For students enrolled in any accredited college or university, this special program offers experience in a healthcare setting.
To qualify, you must be 18-25 years old and able to commit to volunteering for 8-10 consecutive weeks during the summer.
Successful completion of the program provides you with an option to come back during school breaks throughout the year. During the interview process, we will make an effort to provide placement based on your interests.
