Volunteering at UNC Health Care is a
wonderful way to serve others in a meaningful manner, in addition to
becoming exposed to the many career opportunities offered in a health
care setting. We appreciate your interest in serving the
patients at UNC Health Care and look forward to working with
you on your volunteer journey!
"College" Volunteers include
undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education students. Most
of our volunteers attend UNC-Chapel Hill, but it is certainly not a
requirement. Students who are not taking a full course load and
whose schedules do not change by the semester can also
volunteer under the Adult Volunteer guidelines. College
Volunteers register each semester to allow for class schedule
changes. College Volunteer areas and times are assigned on a
first come basis during walk-in registration. Some service areas
have specific volunteer criteria. That criteria is outlined in
the College Volunteer Opportunity List located
