Community Service Opportunities
|Our residents are devoted to helping others and many residents volunteer outside of the hospital. At SHAC, a free student run clinic, residents supervise medical students and see patients of all ages. Other volunteer activities including staffing a free clinic in Durham, Habitat-for-Humanity, and Project Angel Tree during the winter holiday season. Residents are also given the opportunity to staff Camp Care free for one week spans during the summer months. Camp Carefree is a local camp for children with chronic illnesses.
As third years, our residents complete a month long rotation in our North Chatham Pediatrics and Internal Medicine clinic. During this month, our residents see their own patients and also explore community resources for their patients and participate in advocacy projects.
All of our residents can choose to do a month long advocacy rotation through our Pediatric Department.
