Community Service Volunteers

There are many reasons why an individual may want to volunteer with us. We are proud to have a diverse group of volunteers, from college students with career goals in the health care industry looking to gain experience to retirees wanting to give back to the community. Volunteering at UTMC makes an incredible impact and we are grateful for each person who chooses to serve with us!

Apply to Volunteer

Call us at 419.383.6330 or email volunteerservices@utoledo.edu.We are currently accepting applicants 18 and older. Minors interested in volunteering must first have a sponsoring department agree to secure an approved opportunity for them. The department must have the volunteer opportunity reviewed and approved following the University’s Minor on Campus policy before Volunteer Services will process a minor’s application.

For additional information about the requirements and application process, please visit the procedure page or see the Volunteer Requirements Policy.

Please be aware that the process to be cleared before beginning to volunteer generally takes a few weeks. This can take more or less time, depending on how quickly applicants do the requirements, and the volume of volunteers applying.

We need volunteers to help in different areas. Although the specific positions below are not always open, here are some examples of roles a volunteer might have:

  • Liaison Assistants greet patients and guests upon arrival, answer questions about the hospital, give directions, and assist with the registration line.
  • Gift Shop Volunteers work in the hospital gift shop located in the main lobby of the hospital building. Volunteers help customers, work the register, take phone calls, and make deliveries. 
  • Surgery Waiting Room Volunteers help our surgery staff by attending to patient and visitors, maintaining a peaceful environment in the waiting area, answering phone calls, and escorting patients to their surgery location.
  • Clerical Office Volunteers support clerical and clinical staff with office tasks including answering phones, labeling charts, filing, faxing, and making deliveries, while maintaining a high level of confidentiality.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the University of Toledo Medical Center! If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact us at VolunteerServices@utoledo.org or 419.383.6336.
