Join our Medical Explorer Program

Over the years, Sunrise Hospital and Sunrise Children’s Hospital have had a successful Junior Volunteer Program. We are excited to announce that we are taking our Junior Volunteer Program to the next level by partnering with Learning for Life to create the only Medical Explorer Program currently offered in Las Vegas. This new program will provide year round opportunities to high school students 15-17 years old interested in a career in healthcare.

This program is designed to cultivate a long term relationship between the youth of Las Vegas and Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center and Sunrise Children’s Hospital and Medical Center.

Applications will be accepted 3 times a year: Summer, Fall and Spring Term. The intention of the program is to have participants continue throughout their high school careers.

Fall 2022 application will be open until July 24 2022. If you are interested in becoming a Medical Explorer, please click the application link below.
