Student Spotlight: Sonja Lipman at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Volunteer Services

Practicum Placement: East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Volunteer Services

Tagline: “Choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life!”

Highlight: The highlight of my practicum experience is the patient interaction. I love being able to service patients and their families through child life programs, HABIT programs, etc. Putting a smile on a patient’s face is why I love getting up in the morning and coming to work every day!

Surprise: I have been most surprised by all the services a hospital provides patients and their families that are totally unrelated to health! I never realized how other departments in the hospital (like Volunteer Services) are so integral to providing care for families during their time here.
