College Volunteers and Interns

An opportunity to learn, the possibility to share and the chance to care - that's what being a student volunteer is all about.

At Rex, college and graduate-student volunteers have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our patients, their family members and caregivers by working in a variety of positions. Placement areas include, but are not limited to, patient care floors, food and nutrition, pharmacy, physical therapy and same-day surgery.

Students receive hands-on experience while working in a professional healthcare environment that is committed to providing superior customer service.
