Undergraduate patient advocates are critical in ensuring that our patients are given adequate healthcare. Patient advocates are responsible for accompanying patients in the duration of their visit. Undergraduate volunteers take patients' vitals (height, weight, heart rate, respiratory rate and blood pressure), assist medical professionals with lab work--which includes centrifuging blood samples to be sent to UCDMC, and witness real medical provider-patient interactions.
