Miami Children’s Hospital volunteer application

Thanks to Miami Children’s Hospital we are able to provide you guys with an incredible volunteer opportunity for your journey to medical school. You will be able to learn a variety of skills as well as being able to learn from your experience during your time there. Remember you all need a MINIMUM of 120 volunteer hours for medical school. With the hospital’s six month commitment there is no better way to fulfill, and hopefully exceed, this requirement. You’ll also have the chance to shadow a doctor after you’ve fulfilled the commitment if you’re interested. The link to the application to volunteer is as follows:
