Volunteers come to UCSF Medical Center, UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital for many reasons but most come to help others and contribute to the community. In addition, volunteers can learn about the medical profession and to be a part of a team dedicated to providing the highest quality health care.
Please note that orientations are currently full. Information regarding 2012 orientations will be available the first week of December 2011.
All volunteer assignments have a minimum commitment of six consecutive months. Volunteers must serve at least three to four hours a day on the same day each week. The only exception is the eight-week Summer Student Volunteer Program for high school students.
Most volunteer assignments have a minimum age requirement of 16. Volunteers must be 18 years of age to work in Child Life Services, Cancer Resource Center at Mount Zion and Emergency Department. The Summer Student Program is open to high school students age 14 and older.
