Trojan Health Volunteers (THV) is an organization under the Joint Educational Project (JEP) at the University of Southern California that gives undergraduate students who have completed at least 1 semester at USC, the opportunity to obtain valuable volunteering experience in a number of different hospital and clinical settings. Students gain hands-on experience while witnessing the various aspects of medicine. In addition to exposing students to a clinical environment via volunteering, THV is committed to supplementing the clinical experience with weekly written assignments and bioethical group discussions to advance their understanding of the medical world.
We release applications on a semester-basis, generally 3-4 weeks before the first day of classes. When the applications are live, there will be information posted on this website and on our Facebook.
This blog provides feedback and advice from current and previous THV students at each health site, and functions mainly to help new students decide which site might be the best match for them. This may also apply to any returning student who would like to switch sites but isn’t sure what the other sites have to offer, or students that would like to learn more about THV requirements.
