  1. Hi guys, I was wondering whether or not to include the TRAINING I received to become a volunteer as a separate entry in ABS or not. The reason I am asking, is because I have two volunteer positions, one in hospice and one as a research assistant, and both required I complete very lengthy online training and online certifications. For example, for hospice, it was a 13 hour online training that required tests, small essays on a range of topics ranging from palliative care, infectious diseases, caregiver stress, ethics and so on. Likewise for the research assistant position, because it is connected to a long-term care facility, all volunteers had to undergo training on how to care for elderly patients, modules on ethics etc even though my position doesn't have anything to do with that. I am wondering if it's worth making separate entries for these things, or if it is self-explanatory that all volunteer positions must have included training? Thank you!
  2. Good morning, I work as a hospital clerk. I have a main floor where I work often, but during summer, I go on other floors that are quite different. Ex: telemety, surgery, etc. Should I include a work experience for each one of them instead of all putting under one experience? Because I worked at many floors, I can't even say all the specifities of each floor under one experience, because of the word count... Thank you for your help
  3. Hello, we have a room to rent for short term rentals in our charming brick home. This room features a sofa bed which pulls out to a double, a desk and chair, and a huge window looking out onto our lovely backyard. Bathroom is shared. Price is $200 per week. If interested, please email me and I'd be happy to send photos. Thanks!
  4. Hi! I was wondering which volunteer experience does McGill value more : in a hospital or a center for retirement. Why? Thank you
  5. I've been trying to figure out a way to get some 'volunteer exposure' to the medical field but I am finding it incredibly hard to do so! I work a full time job Monday to Friday, and would only be able to volunteer on weekends and evenings. Unfortunately I have applied to all the hospitals in my city to volunteer and I was told they only need volunteers during the day! I contacted CHEO who again said they only need Day volunteers. I contacted the Cancer Society who, again, said they only wanted Day time volunteers. I decided to change gears and ask my Family Doctor (who happens to work a lot of evenings) if I can shadow/help out etc and she said "no we are not allowed to do that". At this point I am getting incredibly frustrated. I've been trying really hard to find a place to volunteer but its next to impossible! I'd like to do it a) to be in the medical environment and make sure its something I may like (though I guess that's hard to see while working in a volunteer capacity) and to have something on my med school application that shows I have 'exposed myself to the medical field' (especially considering I am from a non-health/science related field) Any suggestions on what I should do? What have other non-traditional full time employees working in different fields done to expose themselves to the medical field / volunteer? Has anyone gotten in to medical school without showing any time spent volunteering in the health sciences field?
  6. Some of you have read my post before about my interview to volunteer at a hospital. I asked about possible questions, and that really helped. I now have a general question, and that is, of whoever has volunteered at a hospital, what were your experiences like: 1) Is there anything that really stands out to you in terms of a negative/positive experience? 2) What kind of duties do volunteers have? 3) To what extent are volunteers involved with patients/doctors? 4) Conflicts? 5) Teamwork/Collaboration? These are just prompts to get your mental cogs going. Say whatever you like, anything you share about your experience working at a hospital as a volunteer is helpful!
  7. I am a high school student in Ontario and I applied to volunteer at a hospital in Toronto. I went to the information session yesterday, where they basically told us key things about the hospital and explained the rest of the process etc. So basically it works like this: 1) fill out application, get health screening done, get three reference forms filled out. 2) go to information session after receiving an invitation 3) go to the interview, get health screening approved by the hospital 4) training, probationary period of three months 5) volunteer for nine more months! (the commitment is to volunteer for a minimum of one shift per week for at least a year. So now I'm thinking about the interview, and I'm trying not to be worried, as that will inhibit my ability to relax during it. My public speaking teacher always says to 'practice, practice, practice.. and then relax.' My question is, what is the best way to prepare? I looked up sample interview questions, but I want to know what I can do other than research. I have attached my resume so you can see my experience so far. Please help! Thanks, SeaandMountains
