MUSC medical center's
volunteer and guest services office has relocated its operation to Room
101, North Tower, adjacent to the admissions office (main entrance).
The move helped accommodate the new MUSC Children's Hospital and
Women's Services volunteer office, located in Room 101 of the
Children's Hospital lobby.
This summer, from June to
August, teenage students have a chance to explore their interests in
science and gain experiences working in a health care environment at
MUSC. Students assist patients, families, visitors and work with
hospital employees in various departments throughout the medical center
for three-week sessions.
Candy Striper volunteers Kennede Duncan, 14, left, and Nora Rudolph,
14, depart with a cart of fresh coffee, snacks, magazines and other
reading to share with patients and visitors.
Participants must be at
least 14 years old by the program's orientation date and complete an
online application and meet a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Because of the
volume of applications received and requirements, MUSC volunteer
services may not be able to place every applicant.
A total of 25 junior
volunteers will complete an orientation July 11 with the volunteer
session scheduled July 18 to Aug. 5 and working hours set between 8
a.m. and 4 p.m., weekdays.
