Alumni volunteer programme

Volunteering is a very rewarding and fulfilling experience. Not only does it provide an opportunity to help others, but it can help volunteers to further develop their own skillsets.

Alumni who dedicate their time and expertise in support of their alma mater offer a wide range of practical benefits for students. As RCSI alumni, some of the benefits of volunteering include:

  • Developing and practicing your personal leadership style
  • Enhancing your communication skills
  • Staying abreast of new practices and approaches within healthcare
  • Strengthening your own expertise, knowledge and skills
  • Exercising emotional intelligence and creativity
  • Extending your professional/community network
  • Shaping the healthcare leaders of tomorrow
