Students in this section will participate in community service learning within the University hospitals located on campus. Medical experience is not needed, but students will need to be comfortable initiating interactions with patients. Students will assist patients and hospital staff as appropriate. On nursing floors, tasks might include visiting with patients, transporting patients, answering call lights, joining families in waiting areas, and responding to floor staff or patient needs. In special units such as the Emergency area, Rehab, Burn, the Cardiovascular Center and others, volunteer tasks will vary according to need. Some students may be placed within Mott/Women’s where placements include the Women’s Health Resource Center, Pediatric neuro-rehabilitation, Pediatric occupational physical therapy, cancer treatment playroom, and bedside visiting and comfort. Overall, the hospital staff is very supportive of the program and will provide orientation sessions to help you learn more about your individual placement. An important asset is a sense of ease and warmth with others as well as the ability to initiate discussion and laughter. In addition, students should be prepared to observe and think critically about the experiences of patients within this health care system.

Students will be expected at site for 40 hours of service over the course of the term and will also be expected to attend the necessary orientation(s) at the beginning of the semester. Weekly site times will be established at the interview with UMHS Volunteer Services.

NOTE: First-year students may not volunteer at the hospital during their first semester because of Volunteer Services policy, so they may not enroll in this section of Project Community.

NOTE: Participation in this section is by override only. Students should contact the Project Community office at pcinfo@umich.edu for permission to register. Requests for overrides will be accepted on or after Wednesday, March 10th, 2008. Seats are limited. After permission has been given, names will be sent to UMHS Volunteer Services, so please be sure of your commitment to taking this course when requesting an override.

Project Community will send you an e-mail verification, if you will be issued an override. After you receive this verification, you must contact UMHS Volunteer Services to request an application packet. To receive a packet, email umhs.volunteer@umich.edu, and provide your name and address. All of the materials must be completed before your interview with UMHS. Any student with an incomplete application packet will be asked to reschedule his or her appointment. Proof of mumps, measles and rubella (MMR) vaccination MUST be provided at the time of the interview. In your email verification from Project Community, you will be given details on how to arrange your interview with UMHS.
