Geared toward meeting the flexible scheduling needs of college students, the college program provides a variety of opportunities.

College volunteers must:

  • Submit a complete application
  • Submit a transcript with a minimum 3.0 GPA.  Students must be enrolled in college, and preference is given to pre-medical career studies
  • Provide two letters of reference from non-family members
  • Submit to a criminal background check
  • Submit a medical clearance form completed by your personal physician
  • Interview with a Volunteer Services Staff Member
  • Commit to a minimum of two semesters of service for four hours per week
  • Select a specific weekly service area and volunteer schedule
  • Attend a two-hour volunteer orientation
  • Submit to a T-SPOT blood test for Tuberculosis at orientation
  • Participate in annual T-SPOT blood test each spring
  • Participate in an annual influenza vaccination each fall
  • Pay annual dues of $15 (collected at orientation and due annually each summer)
  • Purchase a volunteer uniform from Volunteer Services for $15 (collected at orientation)
  • All new volunteers are on a 90-day trial period

    Please note:  You will be contacted for an interview only after the Foundation & Volunteer Services Office has received your application, transcript, physician clearance, two letters of reference and criminal background check results. Volunteer Services makes the final decision in placing a volunteer.

*Please note that the Foundation & Volunteer Services Department is not affiliated with the Human Resources Department or any facet of employment services. Volunteering is not a pathway to employment. Acceptance into the program does not guarantee employment with the hospital, nor will it enable you to get a job in any department in which you have volunteered. Those seeking such services should contact their respective academic or employment placement services for further referrals on internship/employment training sites. We view volunteering as a long-term commitment and see committed individuals who will be DeKalb Medical Team Members for years to come.
