Care Extender Program at UCLA

Care Extender Program at UCLA Logo

The Care Extender Program provides opportunities for volunteers to experience Health Care, from a clinical perspective, through patient contact and volunteer involvement. Care Extenders gain first-hand experience on the role of healthcare providers by volunteering in various departments throughout the medical centers. Care Extenders are trained to assist Medical Center staff, who, in turn, are able to share their personal experiences with their volunteers. Time spent in the program proves invaluable because it provides each Care Extender with "in-the-trenches" experience in a real hospital setting. Care Extenders are respected as professional members of a patient care team. As a result, they gain an insider's understanding of the operations of the hospital - an experience which helps them determine their specific course for future studies.
