Volunteer Programs and Opportunities

This page is updated regularly to meet the changing needs of medical center departments.  You may need to visit it often to find an opening in the program/opportunity you seek or schedule that matches your availability.

Volunteers are asked to commit to 180 hours and ten months of service.  This commitment allows volunteers the most personal growth and the opportunity to make the greatest impact on the patient experience.  Letters of recommendation to prospective schools and employers will be provided upon request once the volunteer has completed this commitment.
