Volunteer Orientation

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with UC San Diego Health. Your first step to volunteering with our program is to submit an application for a reservation to our next orientation. Seating is limited. All applications received will be reviewed and evaluated based on timely submission, completeness, legibility, professional presentation and departmental availability.

Please only apply if you are able to start volunteering soon after the orientation, can commit to 100 hours of service over a six-to-seven month period, and are sure you can attend the date of the orientation.

Invitations to the August Orientation Have Been Sent

All applicants selected to attend the August orientation were notified by email on August 14.

  • Please make sure to check your spam folders — invitations can be missed if they are filtered into spam, junk, or social folders.  
  • A confirmed reservation is mandatory for attending an orientation.

If you were not selected for this session, we appreciate your time and effort. Due to the large volume of applications we receive, it is not possible to accommodate all potential volunteers.
