Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in a medical career but don’t know where to start? Volunteering at a hospital or medical care facility is a great way to get to know the industry, make connections and possibly find your passion.  Volunteering will provides an in-depth look into the world of healthcare, as well as valuable experience to include on college and job applications. Minimum age for volunteering at most but not all hospitals is 14 years of age with other programs for students, college students and adults. A minimum time commitment is typically expected as well as parental consent if you are under 18 and you must provide proof of immunizations.
