Orientation Information

​​Applying to attend orientation is the first step of the volunteer application process. Orientations are held approximately seven times throughout the year, during the months of January through November. Due to limited seating, all applicants must be invited to attend an orientation session.

Next Orientation

For applicants with a confirmed reservation:

Thursday, September 29, 2016, 3 - 5 p.m.
UC San Diego Health - Hillcrest
UC San Diego Medical Center, Main Auditorium
200 W. Arbor Drive, San Diego, 92103

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us! All timely, submitted applications were reviewed and invitations to the September orientation were sent by e-mail on Friday, September 23. If you did not receive an e-mail, unfortunately we were not able to reserve a spot for you at this orientation. We wish we could accommodate everyone who is interested in volunteering, but are unable to do so, due to the large volume of applications received.

The date for our next orientation has not been set, but will take place in November. As soon as the date for that orientation is established and posted on the web site, instructions on how to apply will be available.


  • See driving directions to UC San Diego Medical Center.
