College Volunteer Application Process

We are no longer accepting college volunteer applications for the spring semester. Please check back in March 2024 for information pertaining to college summer volunteer opportunities with University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center.

First Year Students

All first year student volunteer roles have been filled. We will have many volunteer opportunities in summer. Please check our website in March for summer applications.

All college students who have completed their first year may sign up for the Acute Care and Care Transitions Information/interview session. This will be the only session available. In order to volunteer in these areas you must attend the mandatory information session which includes an interview and will be held Friday, December 8 from 2 – 4 p.m. and the mandatory orientation will be held on Friday, January 26 from 2 – 4 p.m.

Acute care volunteers will be assigned to a specific acute care unit and will assist with any non-clinical needs the staff or patients may have. They will also perform patient comfort rounding and visitation. We are accepting 50 volunteers for this role. Shifts are available Monday – Friday early morning through evening.

Care Transitions volunteers will visit Lerner, Lakeside and Seidman Cancer Center patients and have Medicare discharge paperwork signed. When there are not patients to visit the Care Transition volunteer will work with staff assisting with various administrative duties and delivering items to patients such as walkers. Shifts are 9 a.m. – noon and noon – 3 p.m. Monday – Friday.
