"Volunteering at UPMC was a powerful learning experience in an exciting place. My work helped both patients and their healthcare providers. These experiences built up my familiarity with hospital work environments and developed my appreciation of how critical the roles of non-physician healthcare workers are for patients. Furthermore, through extensive patient interaction, I gained an understanding of the daily lives of patients staying in the hospital."
