  • Why do you want to volunteer?

“I wanted to volunteer because I wanted more clinical experience going into medical school. When going to college, it’s easy to work on academics, but much more difficult to volunteer and work in the healthcare field as preparation for medical school. ”

  • Why do you want to volunteer with Precious Blood Volunteers?

“I wanted to volunteer with Precious Blood volunteers primarily because it’s a Catholic organization. I went to a Protestant college for four years, and it will be nice to spend a year with devoted Catholics.”

  • What are you looking forward to about your volunteer experience?

“I am looking forward to moving from the academic sphere of college to the practical sphere of the clinic, talking with patients, better learning how the medical field operates, and making connections to other healthcare professionals.”
