Volunteering at UOW
The Faces of Volunteering
UOW is ranked in the top 2 percent of universities in the world, thanks in part to the commitment of our volunteers. UOW values our relationship with our alumni, volunteers and members of the community and the contribution they make to the University and our community.
The Graduate School of Medicine provides a fantastic example of the value of volunteers contributing to the University. Students graduatung from the Graduate School of Medicine benefit from the commitment of more than 150 patient volunteers who gave up their time to assist in the training of these young doctors.
