The Service League also awarded $16,000 to Modesto Junior College and $16,000 to Stanislaus State for their nursing programs. Funds for the scholarship programs at Doctors Medical Center come from profits earned in the volunteer-run hospital gift shop and other fundraisers.
The junior volunteer program requires students maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 and commit to one year of volunteering at the hospital. The application process for the junior volunteer program will reopen in October. DMC accepts adult volunteers throughout the year.
Volunteers at Doctors Medical Center are a vital part of the hospital, providing a great resource for patients, families, visitors and employees.
