Duke Raleigh Hospital

At this time, Duke Health is not onboarding any new volunteers for Duke Raleigh Hospital.


Duke Raleigh Hospital provides college students with the opportunity to experience and observe many aspects of health care in a hospital setting. Our volunteers are assigned to a variety of positions throughout our organization making a difference in the lives of our patients, their family members, and caregivers. We understand that our college student volunteers are often interested in pursuing a career in health care, and we offer volunteer experience to help them reach that goal.
