Discover New Places

University of Utah Hospital is an exciting place to volunteer. As one of the nation's premier medical and research centers, our hospital has been nationally recognized as one of America's Best Hospitals by US News & World Report for the past 14 years. As part of the greater University of Utah Health Care facilities, the hospital also provides extensive training for medical students and other health care professionals. However, our most important mission is providing our patients and their families with excellent care and service.

Meet New People

In addition to making a significant contribution to the hospital and community, you'll realize other benefits by volunteering. It is an opportunity to meet new people from around the country, make new friends, explore new careers and develop new skills.

Our volunteers—working professionals, homemakers, retirees and students—come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Each brings their special talents to the hospital, and because there are so many different needs, every volunteer plays an important role on the team.

Explore Your Opportunities

With the growing demand for medical professionals today, hospital volunteers not only offer a much needed service, but also have a unique chance to familiarize themselves with the health care environment and to explore health care as a profession. Many of our volunteers gain valuable clinical and patient exposure, which is highly encouraged by most medical and professional schools.
