Each year, Volunteer Resources receives many applications from foreign trained medical professionals. While we are pleased to accept your application, volunteers with Trillium Health Partners are not permitted to take on any tasks or responsibilities that fall outside the scope of the volunteer role. Any tasks or responsibilities that only a member of a licensed or regulated profession (physician, pharmacist, physiotherapist, laboratory technician etc.) can perform are not included in any volunteer role descriptions.
Volunteering will not allow you the opportunity to practice or develop your clinical or technical skills, nor are the volunteer roles designed to be professional internship opportunities. Also, to protect patient privacy, Trillium Health Partners does not permit volunteers to shadow physicians or other health care professionals.
