How to Join Us
We’d love to have you join our team and become a University Hospital Volunteer! Here’s some information to help get you started
Types of Volunteers

The experience of volunteering comes with a great deal of responsibility. Our first job is to always be helpful – we must also be courteous, dependable, punctual and maintain confidentiality as we learn new things and meet new people.
During your orientation, you will be provided with the Volunteer Handbook. This in-depth guide will help you to better understand the expectations of our volunteers. It will also help you determine if volunteering is the right choice for you.
