SVC UMCPP is a volunteer project associated with the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP). We connect students interested in volunteering in a health care setting with UMCPP's volunteer program. Volunteers commit to a weekly three-hour shift in one of the units at the hospital (e.g. emergency room, pediatrics, neurology) and primarily work in roles that involve interacting with patients and helping the nursing staff. Duties may include: checking in with patients, translating for patients, transporting patients in wheelchairs, greeting families and visitors, organizing and stripping charts, delivering medications and lab samples, restocking rooms, answering phone calls, and more. Students must go through the hospitalâ€™s application process in order to become a volunteer with UMCPP, and this process may take a couple months.
