TO VOLUNTEER OR NOT?
Volunteering is a way for future health professionals to learn first hand about problems facing different populations in our community.
During the 2016-2017 academic year, MUSC students participated in volunteer service throughout the Lowcountry and abroad in a variety of ways offering a surplus of 16,000 hours of support.
If volunteering in the Charleston community interests you or your group, but you can't decide where to start, call us at 843-792-5138 or stop by the MUSC GIVES BACK office located inside Student Programs Office at the Harper Center. You can even browse our website at www.musc.edu/muscgivesback for more suggestions where you can GIVE BACK! Don't forget to LOG your service hours on the website as well!!
NOTE: The MUSC Gives Back program promotes community volunteer opportunities to the MUSC student body that meet the mission of the Gives Back program. Keep in mind that MUSC does not provide any liability coverage for any MUSC student serving as a community volunteer, and that the MUSC student body is not to be solicited for any medical assisting services or advising. However, MUSC students may volunteer and serve under the active license of another healthcare practitioner who is responsible for this liability. The student volunteer has the responsibility for seeing that this condition is met.
