“Volunteering is something that is really rewarding and is a great experience,” says Jason Thai, a pre-med student who volunteers at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. “I volunteer in patient transport. Usually, I get a page or a call and help the patients go wherever they need.
It’s important because this is a large hospital, and not everyone knows his or her way. Being able to help someone get to where they need to go or help discharge them, is really rewarding because getting lost could be frustrating. Instead, they’re happy. This has been a great opportunity to gain experience and talk with the patients.”
