Application Process for High School Student Summer Program

Note: Applications have closed for Summer 2023 and will re-open on March 15, 2024

London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) welcomes high school student volunteers to the hospital each summer, providing a great opportunity for students who are interested in learning about the hospital and giving back to the community. 

We look for students 16 years of age or older who are available for one shift per week (3 to 4 hours) and for a minimum of 7 weeks of the summer. The summer program begins at the end of June and runs through to Labour Day weekend.
