College Student Volunteers

Winship provides college student volunteers with the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience that makes a difference in the lives of our patients, families, visitors, and staff everyday.

At Winship, there are a variety of opportunities for college volunteers that fuel a genuine desire to serve others and explore the careers available in health care.

Virtual Summer Program

The Emory Healthcare Virtual Summer Student program is an eight-week program geared towards high school and undergraduate college students. This program will have participants from each of the Emory Healthcare hospitals, Winship Cancer Institute, and The Emory Clinic. All program participants will participate in a minimum of ten virtual and interactive webinars with healthcare professionals (clinical and nonclinical) from across Emory Healthcare. The program will run from June 1st – July 31st.

As part of the program, Winship will also offer participants an opportunity to develop and implement a virtual service project. Participants will be broken up into groups and the virtual service project will be created to benefit Winship patients and/or staff.


Service hours will be granted for all attended Zoom sessions. Sign up and registration will be required for each webinar, along with the completion of a post survey in order to verify attendance. In addition, service hours will be granted for the planning and implementation of the virtual service project.
