SVC connects students interested in volunteering in a health care setting with the Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center (PMPMC)'s student volunteer program. Volunteers with PMPMC commit to one weekly three-hour shift in one of the units at the Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center (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 hospital's application process in order to become a volunteer with UMCPP, and this process may take a couple months.
When: Students volunteer one 3-hour shift per week
Where: Meet and serve off campus at PMPMC ; transportation available through the Pace Center's Enterprise CarShare program.
