With VHC, there’s exciting adventure, important commitments, endless challenges, a supportive community and a vibrant network, but there’s more, too. There’s the chance to deepen and broaden your leadership skills while helping us provide underprivileged communities with better access to health care.
We're looking for individuals who have the skills, values, and motivation to take their leadership strengths to a higher level in order to help their peers, profession and communities in need. We have six officer roles and you can click here to learn more about them.
Application for VHC Student Officers is currently closed. In the meantime, please consider signing up to be a VHC volunteer! Throughout the year, our volunteers have the opportunity to work closely with VHC and our community partners to plan and participate in memorable events such as fundraisers, mock clinics, and educational workshops as well as help us reach out to sponsors, donors and healthcare professionals for their support as our ambassadors. These opportunities will help provide you with a better understanding of our mission, the chance to give back, and the ability to network with new people. It will also allow you to get valuable experience that would be beneficial to your application if you choose to later apply as a student member. Please click here to sign up!
