My future plans
My Future Plans

I chose this site because it is the type of facility that I want to end up in

with my future career as a rehabilitation counselor. Being a part of

helping these patients through an extremely difficult physical and

emotional time in their lives has given me an overwhelming sense of

fulfillment and achievement. I am starting graduate school in the fall at

UNC-Chapel Hill in the Rehabilitation Counseling and Psychology

Program. To have already had the opportunity to experience one-on-one

patient interaction as a volunteer at Coastal Rehabilitation Hospital, it has

helped prepare me tremendously for graduate school.

Excellent cite for future volunteers
Excellent Cite for Future Volunteers!

YES!!! I would recommend this cite to any

other students. Being able to follow a

psychologist around and observe how they

interact with patients is an extremely helpful

learning tool that not many students are able

to experience as undergraduates.
