The Pre-Med Program

This summer program is designed for college students who have completed their junior year and are pursuing academic programs leading to medical school. Doylestown Hospital physicians assist with the program, which includes lectures and "hands-on" volunteer work in many departments, including Emergency Department, Critical Care, and the Operating Room.

The Pre-Med program has been developed by the Hospital Medical Staff and the Volunteer Department. It is a ten-week program starting in late May. The Program is supervised by the Hospital's Director of Volunteer Services and is coordinated with a special seminar program conducted by the Doylestown Hospital's Medical Staff to introduce the students to selected phases of a medical career. Students participating in the program are expected to give the Hospital a minimum of 100 hours of volunteer time in various patient related services during the course.

Twelve students will be accepted into the program. Your most current college transcripts, showing a GPA of at least 3.5, must be submitted with the application. Pre-Med students should contact the Volunteer Office directly at 215-345-2204 with any questions. It is important that the student be responsible for all communication.

All Pre-Med Volunteers are required to pass a Criminal Record Check, FBI Fingerprint Clearance and Child Abuse Clearance. Pre-Med Students must obtain their clearances and submit these with the application.

Interviews are granted to the first 10 students who meet all requirements and return a complete application packet.
