Volunteering

Volunteering is an exciting way to contribute to IRAHP. Not only does it give you valuable experience with which to develop your professional skillset, but it allows you to give back to your community in a real and tangible way. Your time spent volunteering with IRAHP will provide you with access to many opportunities to learn from professionals in a wide range of medical fields. This is in addition to great exposure to the business, IT and administration side of IRAHP.

We seek candidates who are motivated, innovative, are great communicators and have a passion for volunteer work. Does this sound like you? If so, we encourage you to apply today!

If you have professional skills which you can contribute to IRAHP, such as in business, communications, web design, administration, newsletter writing, editing or the like, we’d love to hear from you.
