NEW Volunteers — Follow these steps:

Step 1. Register to attend an Information Session.

Information Sessions are held three (3) times a year:

  • April (for the Spring/Summer session, May - August)
  • September (for the Fall session, September - December)
  • December (for the Winter session, January - April)

To register for an Information Session, click here.

After you register, you will receive an email confirmation with instructions and directions.

Step 2 - Schedule and attend an Interview. Instructions for scheduling an interview will be provided at the Information Session. Bring ALL items listed on the Volunteer Interview Checklist to your interview. You will forfeit your appointment if your materials are incomplete. Your interview will last approximately 2 hours.*

Step 3 - Sign up to attend General Orientation once your Interview Appointment is scheduled. You will receive an email confirmation with instructions and directions. Instructions for scheduling a General Orientation will be provided at the Information Session. You may attend a General Orientation before or after your Interview date, but please choose the earliest possible date so you can get started volunteering!

Step 4 - Begin volunteering!

*NOTE: We live in a generous community where many want to volunteer at Michigan Medicine. Because of the limited number of volunteer placements available, every missed appointment means someone else is prevented from having the opportunity to interview. Therefore, we are not able to accept an application from, or schedule future interviews for, anyone who missed their original Volunteer Interview appointment without notifying Volunteer Services.
