Building Clinical Exposure & Volunteer Experience

Building your clinical experience is essential for building a foundation towards health professions.  See below for Seattle, Puget Sound and Washington State hospitals, clinics and service providers.  Some of these links below will directly lead you to volunteering or employment pages.  On some pages you’ll need to keyword search or look on their homepage for volunteer, shadow or employment info. Some links are resources that can help you find programs that can train you for jobs in the field of healthcare you are interested in as well provide information on how to get started. The key for all of this (building your experience and network) is about being proactive, patient and following up and following-through with your communication and commitments.
