Volunteer Services

COVID-19 update: In light of new state regulations to control the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have temporarily suspended our volunteer program. Applications will not be accepted until further notice.

The diverse group of volunteers at UCI Health includes professionals, retirees and other community members, as well as college and high school students. Each volunteer’s dedication to serving the needs of our patients, their families and our clinical staff strengthens UCI Medical Center in our mission to provide the highest quality patient care.

Volunteering is an opportunity to give back to the community by using your current skills or gaining new ones in areas that interest you. Volunteer opportunities are assigned based on the needs of the medical center and the interests of each volunteer.

Adult volunteers are needed throughout the medical center, including the reception areas, the gift shop, cancer center and volunteer office.

Adults can apply to any of the programs listed below.

College student volunteers work in several areas throughout the medical center, including dispatch, transport, nursing units and the emergency room.
