Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We appreciate your commitment to our patients, families and staff.

 

To become a volunteer, you must complete the following items:

 

1. Register for an Orientation Session

 

Register for an orientation by selecting the session you want to attend below and completing the registration form.

After completing the online form, a confirmation note will appear with more details about the orientation. Please print and save this information for future reference. Please note: You must register online for the orientation you want to attend. If you do not register, you will not be allowed to attend the orientation.

 

2. Attend the Orientation Session

 

Please park in the parking ramp in front of UW Hospital and Clinics. At the orientation you will receive materials including an application, a health assessment form, a listing of available opportunities and a volunteer guidebook. Please do not mail, fax or return any forms to Volunteer Services prior to your placement interview.

 

3. Complete and Return the Health Assessment

 

After you complete the health assessment you received at your orientation, turn it in to Employee Health. Employee Health will review your records and notify Volunteer Services of your volunteer eligibility.

 

Once Volunteer Services is notified by Employee Health that you are approved to volunteer, Volunteer Services will contact you by e-mail or phone to schedule a placement interview.

 

4. Attend your Placement Interview

 

Bring your completed application and criminal background check and any remaining materials from orientation, including the guidebook. A finalized schedule and knowledge of your availability for volunteering is also required.
