Places to Begin Looking for Non-Clinical Volunteer Opportunities
These are just a few of the many options you can find around campus. Remember that non-clinical volunteering can add immense value to your preparation for a health profession. It can be a wonderful way to learn about the world and the people living in it. Deeper involvement also provides opportunities for greater initiative on your part. And the value increases as you do work you genuinely care about.
