Emergency Medicine Volunteer Programs

The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine is proud to offer longstanding volunteer programs to undergraduates, recent graduates, post-baccalaureates, and master’s students who are interested in a career in emergency medicine or other area of medicine.

Our department hosts clinical and research programs that take place either during the academic year or during the summer. Students from all colleges and universities are welcome to apply.

Academic Year Volunteer Programs

Patient Advocacy Volunteer Program in Emergency Room Services
September through May; 8 hours per week

Research Associate Internship
September through May; 10 hours per week

Summer Volunteer Programs

Project Healthcare

Health Career Opportunity Program

All of our programs are free to participate in, and we are especially interested in applicants who are underrepresented in medicine. The National Science Foundation has shown that individuals from certain racial and ethnic groups are underrepresented in health-related sciences on a national basis, including Black and African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders.

Some of our summer programs offer NYU-affiliated housing at select NYU dormitories.
