Q.  I would like to volunteer.  What should I do?
A.  Once you have completed an application form and questionnaire, we will invite qualified candidates in for an interview to discuss how we can match your interests with the hospital’s needs. To request an application, please call the Department of Volunteer and Student Services at (718) 283-3980. 

Q.  How long does it take before I can start volunteering?
A.  As soon as we receive your completed application and two personal references, you will be invited for an interview to discuss your past experience and skills, as well as the volunteer opportunities available. If accepted, you will be scheduled for a 2-hour orientation. For some programs, there are additional trainings involved. 

Q.  Do I need to have medical clearance?
A.  Yes. Our medical requirements include: an annual physical exam and a PPD test within 6 months both completed by your private physician as well as an official lab report showing immune titers to measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella. We will give you the medical packet at the time of the interview.

Q.  Will I get paid?
A.  Volunteer positions are not paid. However, as a token of our appreciation, we will provide you with a meal voucher to be used in our cafeteria. We will also invite you to our annual Recognition ceremony.

Q.  Will I get a job at Maimonides after I volunteer?
A.  Volunteering does necessarily not lead to paid employment. However, you will get experience and gain skills necessary for future career opportunities.

Q.  Can I volunteer whenever I want?
A.  All volunteers are scheduled according to their availability and departmental needs. The Department of Volunteer and Student Services hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  However, the hospital hours are more flexible.

Q.  What can I do as a volunteer?
A.  Please refer to the Hospital-Wide Volunteer Programs.

Q.  I am a student from an affiliated school and need to complete my clinical rotation at Maimonides. What do I do?
A.  All volunteers and students must complete the same application, interview, and orientation process before they can start.
