Volunteer Services

Welcome to the Volunteer Services Home Page.  Volunteer Services is associated with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and the School of Medicine.

TTUHSC Volunteer Services has provided service opportunities in a healthcare setting for more than 25 years.  Thousands of participants have gained practical experience in many healthcare related fields.  Many have continued forward as a result of their volunteer experience and have become physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals.  Others have discovered a passion to serve.  Whatever your passion, our mission is to provide you with an opportunity to "make a difference."
