Volunteer Work


Volunteer opportunities offered in my town that could benefit me in pursuing this career:


  • Volunteering at Asante Medical Center

This could benefit me because I would learn more about what it's like working in the medical field, whether it's doing paperwork/just being an assistant.


  • Volunteering at Grants Pass Physical therapy clinic

This would really benefit me because I would see the daily routine of a physical therapist, even if I'm just doing paperwork. I would have a better idea of the work load put on physical therapists, what paperwork they have to do, and what their work environment is like.
