In celebration of National Volunteer Week, the Southern Medical Program would like to express our sincere appreciation for our dedicated group of Volunteer Patients. Our students are incredibly grateful for you giving up your time to assist in their medical education.
Over the past academic year, our students have had over 300 encounters with Volunteer Patients. We are fortunate to have more than 100 Volunteer Patients from Peachland, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Vernon, Lumby, Salmon Arm, and Kamloops participating in clinical skills training.
Thank you for taking the time to share your stories and experiences, and for generously allowing our students to practice and enhance their clinical skills. Each of you plays a vital role in helping to educate and train our future physicians.
If you would like to find out more or to get involved, please contact Diane Oorebeek, Volunteer Patient Recruiter and Trainer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
