Are you interested in health care careers? We strive to give our student volunteers experiences that will help them make decisions about their future careers. Volunteering at Capital Medical Center immerses students in a health care environment, introduces them to medical staff and provides resources for information about the many careers in health professions.
Although volunteering is a community service where individuals donate their time, we try to take care of our volunteers in every way that we can. In appreciation for all our volunteers do for the hospital, we offer some benefits.
- Letter of recommendation upon completing 100 service hours
- Free annual flu shot
- Complimentary coffee, tea and water
- Complimentary lunch for volunteers working a four-hour shift
- Invitation to annual volunteer appreciation celebration
