Volunteer Services

We’re delighted that you have an interest in volunteering at UT Southwestern Medical Center. We offer both adult and youth volunteer opportunities in a variety of areas. Our volunteer ranks include professionals, high school and college students, homemakers, and retirees.

Volunteers help continue UT Southwestern’s tradition of caring service and assistance to our patients, guests, and staff. We offer challenging and rewarding opportunities that will let you help others and help you grow as an individual, too. Whatever your interest, we can find an area where you’ll make a difference.

Duties and Hours

Hospital volunteer duties are primarily clerical and customer service-oriented. There are weekday, evening, and weekend positions available. Most volunteers work once a week for a three- to four-hour shift. Adult volunteers are asked to make a one-year commitment. College students are asked to make a two-semester or 100-hour commitment.

Youth Volunteers

To participate in our youth program, volunteers must be 15 years old or have completed ninth grade. The annual seven-week summer program begins in mid-June and continues through early August. Applications for the youth program are available beginning April 1.
