Each year, more than 200 individuals from throughout Memphis and the Mid-South devote more than 16,000 hours to assist in caring for and providing service to our patients, families, and staff. Volunteering at Regional Medical Center provides a rewarding and unique experience to affect and help improve the quality of life for individuals throughout the region. As a volunteer you will not only enjoy the rewards of "giving back" to the community, but also find avenues to further your interests, discover new opportunities to use your existing skills and talents, and receive service credits towards your education and career goals.
Internships for 2014 will be offered during the summer and fall semesters, only. The application process is coordinated through college career services, experiential learning and internship departments. If your college advisor does not have a copy of available internship opportunities, please have them contact Volunteer Services for more information.
Volunteers impact many areas of our hospital. They are a vital resource to our patients, families, visitors and staff. Their hard work and dedication makes an extraordinary difference in the care we offer. Regional Medical Center offers opportunities for service that accommodate the schedules of working adults, college students, retirees and teens.
Our Volunteers work in a variety of different departments providing service in an assortment of ways. Each volunteer is given the opportunity to determine his/her area of service, time and day they are available to volunteer.
Volunteer Opportunities are available in:
We ask that volunteers make a commitment of five months and provide at least seventy-two hours of service. This time commitment allows the volunteer to have a real impact and provides the greatest return of personal satisfaction. Volunteers must satisfactorily complete five months of service to receive a letter of recommendation for school or prospective employment. (Note: Your letter of recommendation will be provided by your preceptor, not Volunteer Services.) Monthly, volunteer applicants are provided updates regarding their application status, and next steps. Applicants may contact Volunteer Services at any time during the process to request application updates at email@example.com, or 901-545-7247.
Volunteers must be eighteen years of age and a high school graduate, unless applying for the Teenteer Volunteer Program. Our volunteers have good interpersonal skills, exemplify positive behavior, are service oriented and support the vision and mission of Regional Medical Center.
