College Volunteer

AnMed Health College Volunteers

College students bring energy and enthusiasm to our volunteer program. We understand that many students have a desire to learn and gain valuable experience in a professional healthcare setting. Others, who don’t necessarily plan to work in healthcare, want to be involved in the community in a meaningful way.

The AnMed Health College Volunteer Program provides a great opportunity for students to do both - to contribute to the community and to see the daily operations of a thriving, comprehensive healthcare system. 

As valued members of the AnMed Health team, volunteers serve alongside our staff members to create an exceptional overall experience for our patients and visitors in a variety of assignment areas.

Things to know when applying to the College Volunteer Program

 AnMed Health Volunteer Services does not accept applications for court ordered community service hours.

Job shadowing/internships are coordinated by the individual departments in which those activities are performed. These opportunities are different from volunteering and are not coordinated by the Volunteer Services department.

  • A minimum of sixty volunteer hours is required. This can be accomplished over the course of more than one semester if necessary.
  • Verification of volunteer hours/letters of recommendation will not be provided unless/until this commitment has been met.
  • Applications are only accepted three times a year and the processing time for applications and interviews can take up to 3 weeks, so plan early.
  • Placement areas, schedules, and training dates will be discussed in the interview, and confirmed once orientation is completed.
  • Schedules are on a weekly basis and typically consist of three to four hours per shift.

When to Apply

The online application will open within the first five business days of the month as indicated below. Application submission does not guarantee placement.

STUDENTS SHOULD NOT APPLY TO THE ADULT PROGRAM WHEN THE COLLEGE APPLICATION PROCESS IS CLOSED.

SUMMER SESSION – May/June/July/August - Online application opens in April.

FALL SESSION – September/October/November/December - Online application opens in August.

SPRING SESSION – Jan/Feb/March/April - Online application opens in December.

The application link will close once the number of applications received meets the current needs, or at a point during the semester when it is no longer feasible to accept volunteers for that session.
