RVU’s mission includes “inspiring students to serve with compassion, integrity and excellence.” This includes serving fellow classmates as well as the community. Being involved in the community provides students a sense of internal value and purpose. As students learn to engage in service to others, they develop emotional and spiritual wellness and stay connected with the reason why they wanted to be doctors in the first place.
There are many different volunteer opportunities within the RVU Community and the Community abroad. Task force and ad hoc committees as well as Associations, Clubs and Organizations (ACOs) provide a wide variety of volunteer leadership opportunities. Outside of the RVU Community, volunteer opportunities are limitless. As opportunities become available, they are posted on Microsoft 365 Colorado Campus TEAM for student reference.
Below are a few links of volunteer opportunities in the area:
Additionally, students volunteer at RVU-sponsored events throughout the year, such as:
- High school sports physicals
- Stock Show health events
