Accencare Hospice is looking to for Pre-Medical and Medical School Students to join our interdisciplinary team for an exciting volunteer and educational opportunity. Together, we will explore disease from the perspective of being more than just a physical experience. This is an opportunity to personally engage the emotional and spiritual needs and realities of patients with terminal illness. As a Accentcare Hospice Volunteer you Will be responsible for patient visits a few times a month. This can consist of being an active presence, deep listener, as well as as a myriad of other creative opportunities.
"I learned about a lot of things in medical school, but mortality wasn’t one of them. Although I was given a dry, leathery corpse to dissect in my first term, that was solely a way to learn about human anatomy. Our textbooks had almost nothing on aging or frailty or dying. How the process unfolds, how people experience the end of their lives, and how it affects those around them seemed beside the point. The way we saw it, and the way our professors saw it, the purpose of medical schooling was to teach how to save lives, not how to tend to their demise."
