We onboard and place PT/OT volunteers during the fall (August/September), spring (December/January) and summer (May/June). The preference is for pre-PT/OT or current PT/OT students. We have limited openings in the program, and participation is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received and will accept volunteers into the program until the program fills up. Please note: If you are a college student, you must be staying in Nashville through the summer to start volunteering now. Otherwise, please wait and apply for the Fall 2020 session.
Our application window for our Spring 2020 Program is now closed. Our next program will start in May/June 2020. Please check back after April 1st for the Onboarding Day and application.
Our PT/OT opportunities are currently scheduled at the Adult Hospital and Clinics. We have outpatient placements and inpatient placements. Openings are between 9a-4p, Monday through Friday. There are very limited weekend placements (inpatient only).
There is a 50-hour commitment, which is a 3-hour shift, (9a-12p or 1p-4p) once a week until the 50 hours is reached, which is generally six months. Verification of completion will be given when the 50-hour commitment is met.
