We offer flexible scheduling to accommodate semester and class schedule changes. In addition, volunteering at United Hospital may help you in your degree program.

In addition to our weekly college program, we offer Health Care Serve & Learn Experience (SALE). Through this program, college students gain valuable experience while participating in the rewarding opportunity to meet with a health care professional.
