The Hospital for Joint Diseases provides a diverse range of volunteer opportunities. All programs are non-medical and there are no doctor shadowing positions.
As a general rule, hospital volunteers are required to commit to volunteering on the same day, at same time each week for at least 6 months. Commitment time lengths vary from program to program (4 to 12 months).
We encourage students to volunteer. We offer select programs that accommodate volunteer requests, depending on the time of year and volume of applications. Please let us know if you need to work volunteering around a school schedule and we will see what is available.
The deadline for summer applications is March 31st. Summer applicants must commit to 120 hours of service within 6-8 weeks. There are limited summer volunteer positions available and due to the amount of applications we receive, we are unable to respond to everyone. We will respond if we think you will be a good match for our programs that have openings.
