Hi! I was wondering if there are some virtual initiatives available for undergrads to volunteer, that can count towards clinical hours, such as calling patients and checking in, along those lines.

Hi!
There are various virtual initiatives that students can do online; I don’t believe many are clinical as that would involve being in a medical/health-based environment. However, I would think calling patients would count as patient hours.
In terms of a job where you call and check-in with patients, I would suggest looking at the recently posted jobs on the UM-employment website. (https://studentemployment.umich.edu/). They’re always posting new jobs, and I believe I had seen some office-based virtual jobs through Michigan Medicine that involve calling patients when I checked a day ago.
 
Additionally, PMH has multiple resources that link to virtual experiences. I’ll link some here and here.
 
You may also have some luck looking for some volunteer positions here.
