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 attend an information session (in Sept. for fall, Dec. for winter, April for spring). The UMHS Volunteer Services website provides more details (http://www.med.umich.edu/volunteer/). If you decide to interview, indicate that you’re interested in Unit 6A, Adult Rehabilitation. Availability of slots on 6A will depend on the needs of the Unit when you apply.

If you will be volunteering on 6A, please email Jeff Evans at jeevans@umich.edu with the time of your shift, so we can arrange to meet. Also email if you have any questions.
