The ICU Bridge Program provides university students with the opportunity to volunteer and shadow in the ICU. Not only does this help visitors in these vulnerable times, but the experiences gained by our volunteers will help shape our future healthcare practitioners.
Volunteers are at the hospital for 4 hours a week. At each shift, a team of 2 volunteers will work together to provide support to the family, patients and healthcare staff members.
For 1 of the 4 hours, volunteers can shadow healthcare professionals during their day-to-day practice.
Shadowing includes: 1-on-1 shadowing and observing in rounds, critical care rounds, and the operating room.
