Use your acting skills to help train future doctors! (Acting experience helpful but not necessary.)
You will be trained to portray a medical patient in live roleplay sessions, and to help evaluate students on their clinical skills by filling out checklists.
Currently, all of our programs are being conducted remotely, via Zoom. You need to have a reliable internet connection, and the appropriate equipment such as a webcam and microphone. You need to be a resident of Hawaii. We hope to resume in-person programs at our Kaka'ako campus soon.
This is an opportunity to contribute to the care the future-patients of our students. Other benefits include: practice in the skill of acting/roleplay, networking with other actors and community members, learning about medicine, clinical skills, communication, etc.
When funds are available, we provide a stipend for your time--usually $50 for a half-day, $100 for a full day. When we do events on-site, we also provide food.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
