Volunteer Program Assistant
Other Course Description or Assignment Information:
- Volunteers at HPC have the opportunity to work closely with a physiotherapist or chiropractor to gain hands-on experience in treating and interacting with patients, while ensuring the HPC is adequately supported to run smoothly on a daily basis. Volunteers are assigned a consistent 2hr weekly, in-clinic shift with the same practitioner for an entire semester, with the expectation of a minimum 2 semester commitment. The core, in-clinic, shadowing experience is complemented by additional opportunities tailored specifically to develop professionalism, communication skills and explore career opportunities in the health care field, through community outreach events, special workshops, personal and professional goal setting and critical reflection. Volunteers are expected to actively participate in these events above and beyond their 2hr weekly shift.
