Lake Norman Regional Medical Center’s Junior Volunteers Make a Difference

February 1, 2012 by Michael DeStefano, Marketing Intern

The Lake Norman Regional Medical Center Volunteer Auxiliary is now accepting student applications to participate in the summer Junior Volunteer Program at the hospital.  The program is an opportunity for students to receive first-hand exposure to the operations of various hospital departments including Imaging, Surgery, Endoscopy and Women’s services.

Applications are available online on Lake Norman Regional Medical Center’s website under the careers tab, through local school guidance departments and at the visitor’s desk at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center located at 171 Fairview Road in Mooresville.  The program is open to rising high school juniors and seniors.  Applicants are required to complete an essay and provide two teacher recommendations and two personal references.  A Volunteer Auxiliary committee will select 25 students to receive at least 32 hours of volunteer opportunity each.  An orientation will be held at the end of May and the program will run for eight weeks in June and July.

“This is a competitive and rewarding program,” says Auxiliary Junior Volunteer Coordinator Jules Fawbush.  “We look for students who are career-driven and interested in working in a professional health care field.”Completed applications must be returned to the Junior Volunteer Coordinator at the hospital by March 31.
