The Physical Rehabilitation volunteer opportunity provides Pre-Therapy students with the ability to gain hands-on experience and hours within an Outpatient and Swing bed facility. As a rehabilitation volunteer, you would be expected to greet and interact with patients, assist the therapists with patient care, clean and sterilize therapy equipment, monitor patients during modality treatments, assist with therapy office tasks, and aide the therapist in other tasks as necessary. The opportunity allows the student to gain exceptional experience and exposure to the field of physical medicine.
