*NOTE: We live in a generous community where many want to volunteer at UMHS. 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.
