Clinical Volunteer Opportunity in Emory's Radiology Department

Clinical Volunteer Opportunity in Emory's Radiology Department

This clinical volunteer experience at Emory is open to current students. Volunteers will be expected to help patients and nurses one day a week, likely between 11- 2 pm.  Volunteers will gain experience in the clinical setting, helping to keep patients comfortable during and between procedures, helping transport patients between rooms, giving directions to clinic visitors, and helping clinic staff with basic duties.

Interested students should contact Ms. Wendy Nyberg at wnyberg at emory dot edu.  Applicants should include a resume and treat the email as a cover letter - clearly stating your interest in the program, interest in clinical experience, any previous volunteer experience and/or experience with customer services.

Other tips:

If offered a meeting with Ms. Nyberg, please treat the meeting as an interview and remember you will be in a clinical setting in which business casual is the appropriate dress.  Although volunteer, these positions are integrated into the department's clinical setting and student volunteers are expected to take the experience seriously and dress appropriately.

Proof read your email and resume several times!  Take advantage of the Career Center and their expertise.  Did you know you can have them review your resume for free?
