MASH Student Program
The Maury Academy for Students in Health (MASH) Program is a two-week
health careers summer camp for high school students interested in learning about
health professions. Exposure to different areas of medicine and health-related
professions is an integral part of the MASH experience. Students interact with
experts such as physicians, registered nurses, medical technologists, radiologic
technologists, respiratory therapists and pharmacists. During the
program, students learn about physical assessment, casting, suturing,
medical terminology and much more. Considerations will be made for those
interested in job shadowing after the program. Applicants must be entering their
junior or senior year in high school, have completed one biology class, demonstrate
scholastic ability and critical thinking skills and provide recommendationsfrom school personnel. Students must also attend an interview as part
of the application process.
The 2016 MASH program will be held June 6-17. Applications for the MASH program are accepted during the months of January and February. Applications will be available online here during that time.
The purpose of this program is to provide appropriate, soothing music to our patients and visitors in an effort to help ease their stress and anxiety during their time in the hospital. Instruments used must be conducive to a health care setting. This volunteer opportunity is perfect for those with a musical talent they would like to share, and it is especially designed for those who work and would like to share their talents, but only have a limited time in which to offer their services. Hours can be very flexible for those who are interested.
The Junior Volunteer program is open to those age 15 and older who have completed their freshman year of high school. Students must have at least a 3.0 grade point average. Those under the age of 18 must have approval of their parent or guardian. Each junior volunteer must commit to serve at least 100 hours each year.
Junior volunteers may be assigned to work in a variety of areas including patient care areas, nursing stations, information desks, registration areas and the Auxiliary Gift Shop. To learn more about the Junior Volunteer program at MRMC, contact Volunteer Services at 931.380.4047.
Pet therapy is a program developed by the Maury Regional Volunteer Services Department to brighten the stay of patients in our care. Studies have shown that physical contact with a pet can lower anxiety, reduce high blood pressure and, in some cases, cause the release of endorphins, chemicals in the body that help to reduce the pain response. For more information about the program, becoming a volunteer or arranging a pet visit, please contact Volunteer Services at 931.380.4047.
