Application Process


 Before applying, we ask that you familiarize yourself with the volunteer requirements and expectations.  If you would like to become a volunteer, please complete the following steps:

  1. Complete the Volunteer Application. You can access the application on the Volunteer Services home page. (If you are under 18 years of age, please see Youth Volunteers link under Resources on this page.)
  2. On the application form, you must provide two personal references. These references may be from a former employer, teacher, clergy person, or volunteer coordinator.
  3. The application will be submitted automatically on line.  A member of the staff will send an email inviting you attend a Volunteer Information Meeting within three weeks of receiving your application.
  4. If you wish to continue with the volunteer application process following the Information Meeting, we will schedule an interview with Volunteer Services personnel.
  5. Following the interview, a criminal background check will be submitted.
  6. We will contact you when we receive the results of the criminal background check with details regarding volunteer on boarding requirements which include immunization documentation, two TB skin tests, and depending on where you will volunteer, you may also need the Hepatitis B series. TB skin tests and Hepatitis B vaccinations are provided to you at no charge at the Work Wellness Center.  The Work Wellness Center is located on the A level of the hospital near the south end of the School of Medicine. Please take your current vaccination records with you. The clinic hours are from 7:30am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday. Please call 581-2227 with any questions regarding the required immunizations.
  7. Finalizing volunteer on boarding:
    Once you have completed the onboarding requirements you may stop by the Volunteer Office to finalize your placement, purchase a volunteer shirt and receive a four digit PIN for logging your volunteer hours.  We will also arrange additional orientation or hands-on training for your volunteer assignment with the department coordinator.

We look forward to meeting you and feel that both you and University of Utah Health will benefit from your volunteer experience!
