UAB Office of Service Learning

The office is eager to help you find the ideal opportunity, whether it is through a service learning course or on your own.

Volunteering with UAB Medicine

UAB Hospital has wonderful volunteer opportunities for students, especially those interested in health careers. By volunteering, you will be a very important part of the success of the hospital and you will also be making a huge difference in the life of another. The Healing Words program is especially popular with students in UAB's Pre-Health program, but students are placed in departments all over the hospital, too.
