University Health Service (UHS) is now accepting applications for volunteer graduate student HIV test counselors. Through this position, students in fields such as health, social work, and psychology can apply their knowledge, while other students might enjoy the opportunity to get outside their school, connect with others on a different level, and make a contribution.
Benefits -- as a volunteer, you could:
- Gain valuable knowledge and work experience plus network with health professionals
- Enhance your experience in your graduate program
- Become certified as an HIV test counselor in the State of Michigan
- Be a graduate student at the University of Michigan during Fall 2012/Winter 2013 (sorry, undergrads are not eligible)
- Be certified as an HIV test counselor by the Michigan Department of Public Health (the certification training is free to selected volunteers and occurs during the summer)
- Attend a 1-day training at UHS in early September
- Volunteer 2.5 hours/week (12:45-3:15 pm weekdays) at UHS, plus some evening hours during Fall 2012 and Winter 2013
We are seeking a diverse group of wonderful volunteers and encourage all applicants. Many volunteers say their experience at UHS is their favorite part of their day.
Complete the application form and submit it by Friday, February 17, 2012 at midnight.
