Orientation Information for UC San Diego Health Volunteers

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 during the specified timeframe will be reviewed.

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.

The April Orientation Application Period is Now Closed

We will review all applications submitted and postmarked by the cut-off date for inclusion in the April orientation.
  • If your application is accepted, you will receive an email on April 25 by the end of the day with an invitation to attend.
  • A confirmed reservation is always mandatory in order to attend.
  • Please make sure to check your spam folders—invitations can be missed if they are filtered into spam, junk, or social folders.
