The goal of this project is to improve the experience of patients admitted to UTMC. The Well Read project offers an opportunity for medical student volunteers to interact with patients outside of the medical professional role and offer patients an activity to occupy their mind while their body is healing. Feel free to be as engaging as your time permits. It is important to keep your interaction casual so please resist the temptation to get the patient’s medical history :)
The anticipated time commitment is three hours with up to two volunteers per Book Cart Rounds. Duties include obtaining the book cart from the 5th floor of Mulford Library, offering books to patients on two or three units, making brief notations in the Rounds Log, and returning the book cart to its storage location in Mulford and unloading it. If you are a preclinical student, we will pair you with someone who is familiar with the hospital for your first shift. As a representative of UTCOM, please dress and act appropriately. If a patient asks you a question about their current health or make any requests, you may let them know you don’t know the answer, and let a nurse know they need assistance.
Who can volunteer?
Any student at The University of Toledo with an @rockets.utoledo.edu email address who has completed HIPAA training is welcome to participate. Health science campus students including preclinical medical students, nursing students, and physician's assistants students are encouraged - it is a good way to gain clinical experience and learn about the hospital before your clinical clerkships begin!
The suggested attire is "business casual." We want to look professional, but white coats are discouraged. Our goal is to be more informal healers. Please wear your UT ID.
