As the situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to rapidly evolve, Duke University Health System is working diligently to monitor developments and implement guidelines to prevent the spread of infection. Our top priority is to keep patients, visitors, team members, and the community at large safe. At this time, all hospital volunteer programs are suspended until further notice. We will keep you updated about the status of our volunteer program, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our hospitals in this important capacity as soon as possible.
Duke University Hospital is pleased to offer a volunteer program for college students. Although the program is designed to meet core competencies for students considering a career in health professions, volunteering is open to all majors.
Volunteer programs at Duke University Hospital do not provide clinical or shadowing experience. They do, however, provide opportunities for patient and family engagement with a hospital or clinic setting.
