Volunteers in Partnership (VIPs)
The purpose of SSM Health Monroe VIPs is to offer non-direct care to benefit and supplement the mission of SSM Health Monroe. VIPs help to promote community goodwill and understanding of SSM Health Monroe, contribute funds for support of the mission, and provide yearly scholarships for students in the healthcare field.
At SSM Health Monroe, we recognize that our young people have so much to offer through their enthusiasm, compassion and volunteerism. During the summer months, area youth, ages 14 to 19, enjoy the skill-building opportunities and personal enrichment our volunteen program offers them. All volunteens will be required to go through a health screening and orientation before they can begin.
We are proud to offer scholarships to Monroe High School graduates, graduates of high schools in our branch location communities, and continuing education scholarships to students who have completed one or more years of study in a medical field. 2021 applications closed February 28, 2021
