There are a variety of opportunities for volunteers to get involved. People of all ages and backgrounds volunteer at UMC. Volunteers are divided into two subcategories dependent on their age and interests.
Generally high school or collegiate age. UMC requires a minimum of a semester commitment from student volunteers. Various roles and opportunities available with limited patient contact, including Health Unit Coordinator, cancer center, pediatrics, trauma & burn office, pharmacy, and more.
Generally adults from the community who can give 2-4 hours per week for 3-6 months or more. This category offers access to most volunteer opportunities including Information Desk, Couriers, Greeters, and Patient Advocacy, as well as specialty volunteer assignments such as Pet Therapy and Music Therapy. This category includes access to join the UMC Auxiliary – a non-profit group whose mission is to further support the UMC Health System through fundraising, community awareness, and other service. Auxiliary members have the opportunity to join the Auxiliary Board after 1 year of service. Placement available through the Department of Volunteer Services.
