The Companionship Project

Our club supports the needs of two distinct populations. For patients without family or friends able to visit them, we offer a supportive bedside presence unaffiliated with the treatment team.

For students, especially preclinical students, we offer the opportunity to experience our hospital from the patient’s perspective, as well as exposure to the emotional and social challenges of being hospitalized with a serious illness.

As a relatively new club (founded in 2018), we are eager to recruit new members. To learn more about us, email
