Many people apply to the Department of Rehabilitation looking for volunteer opportunities. Often these are high school or university students who wish to enter the physiotherapy or occupational therapy professions. Due to the volume of interest and work load of our therapists, we are not able to provide clinical volunteer experience.
You can volunteer at the Department of Rehabilitation by contacting the Volunteer Services department directly and asking to be placed within rehabilitation. Please be aware that we only offer clerical experiences, but this may give you an idea of how a busy acute care rehabilitation department works.
Those seeking interaction with parents and patients, other departments may be more suitable. Please refer to the SickKids Volunteer Resources page where you will find information on volunteering at SickKids.
