SPHSC Volunteer Opportunity

Check out the fol­low­ing oppor­tu­nity offered by Dr. Bay­lor and Dr. Burns!

We are cur­rently run­ning a research pro­gram train­ing med­ical stu­dents how to com­mu­ni­cate effec­tively with future patients with com­mu­ni­ca­tion dis­or­ders. Over the com­ing weeks we will be meet­ing with med­ical stu­dents for eval­u­a­tion ses­sions as part of this research. Dur­ing these ses­sions, the med­ical stu­dents will com­plete some ques­tion­naires about com­mu­ni­ca­tion dis­or­ders. They will then com­plete two sim­u­lated med­ical inter­views with stan­dard­ized patients who are por­tray­ing dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ca­tion disorders.

We antic­i­pate need­ing some vol­un­teers to help us run these ses­sions. We are look­ing for SPHSC stu­dent vol­un­teers who would be avail­able and inter­ested to help run those test­ing ses­sions. Here are what the duties might entail:

  1. Set­ting up rooms, set­ting up record­ing equip­ment, etc.
  2. Check­ing med­ical stu­dents in and out of the ses­sions and help­ing man­age sched­ule / flow of stu­dents in the sessions
  3. Oper­at­ing video recorder to record the SP inter­views and tim­ing the interviews
  4. Orga­niz­ing paper­work / record-keeping asso­ci­ated with the session
  5. Help­ing with what­ever I for­got to get ready….

We are ten­ta­tively run­ning ses­sions on six dates this quarter:

Mon­day 1/26 (this one is cer­tain – we are booked)

Tues­day 1/27

Mon­day 2/2

Mon­day 2/23

Tues­day 2/24

Wednes­day 2/25

The ses­sions run from about 7:45 AM (for set-up) to noon-ish. You do not need to work every one of these ses­sions – even if you can help out with one or two that would be great (if you can do more, even bet­ter). You do not need to stay all morn­ing (although we would love it if you could); but we do ask if you sign up that you would be able to do a 2-hour length of time with us (hav­ing new stu­dents in and out every hour will be too crazy). If you could do 7:45 – 9:30 or 9:30 – 11:30 (roughly) that would be ok. The ses­sions will be in Health Sciences.

If you are inter­ested please email me at (cc Mike Burns at for sched­ul­ing and let me know which session(s) you would like to do. We will send out more detailed ori­en­ta­tion infor­ma­tion to the stu­dents to sign up to help.
