Students volunteer weekly at University of Michigan Hospital on the adult inpatient unit of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Service includes assisting staff and interacting with patients, most of whom have neurological injuries (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury) or chronic illnesses. Observing and being part of an inpatient rehabilitation unit of a large teaching hospital provide numerous opportunities for learning. One credit is awarded for fulfilling your commitment at the hospital, for keeping a journal of your experiences and observations, and for writing a short reflective paper at the end of the semester. Meeting with rehabilitation neuropsychologist and Residential College faculty member Dr. Jeffrey Evans will be arranged.

If you think you might like to volunteer, your first step is to consult the UMHS Volunteer Services website for a step-by-step description of how to become a volunteer (link on the University of Michigan Health System external home page). For this independent study, when asked for your preference, state that you are interested in volunteering on Unit 6A, Adult Rehabilitation. Availability of slots on 6A will depend on the needs of Unit 6A when you apply. If you are assigned to volunteer on 6A, email Jeff Evans at jeevans@umich.edu with your volunteer schedule and to arrange a first meeting.
