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.
After your application is accepted into the program, you will need to attend a mandatory Onboarding Day. Due to a transition and reorganization within our departmental staff, our application session is temporarily closed. We are unsure of when the next volutneer recruitment will begin, but are hopeful to start back in January 2019. Please check back for updated information.
Our PT/OT opportunities are currently scheduled at the Adult Hospital and Clinics between 9a-4p, Monday through Friday. There are no evening or weekend placements. We have outpatient placements and inpatient placements.
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.
