The Madison House Medical Services program provides opportunities for UVA students to volunteer at the UVA Health System, Martha Jefferson Hospital, and the Charlottesville Free Clinics. The mission of Medical Services is to serve the community and to provide meaningful experiences to all of our volunteers. Volunteers assist hospital staff, patients, and their families in a wide variety of roles throughout our partner sites. We try to match volunteers with positions that match their career interests and to provide opportunities for volunteers to gain leadership experience.
Medical Services volunteers make a year-long commitment to serve a 3-hour shift each week of the academic year.
Please note, signups for Medical Services occur only during the Fall semester and students commit to a full year of service. If you are interested in volunteering in a healthcare setting this academic year, you should seek opportunities through a different program.
Fall 2017 Information Sessions
Prospective volunteers must attend one of four mandatory information sessions, where they will learn about the program and we will explain how to apply to receive a sign-up time. Applicants will then have an opportunity to attend an optional Program Director (PD) Meet & Greet, in order to learn more about specific units of their interest. Prospective volunteers do not have to complete any applications prior to the information sessions.
- Monday 8/28, 5-6pm, in Newcomb Theater
- Tuesday 8/29, 6-7pm, in Newcomb Ballroom
- Wednesday 8/30, 5-6pm, in Newcomb Ballroom
- Thursday 8/31, 5-6pm, in Newcomb Ballroom (PD Meet & Greet will be held at the Kaleidoscope Room from 6-7pm following this session)
Due to the high level of interest in this program, each applicant will be randomly assigned to an appointment time after attending an info session AND completing the application. In order to sign up for a shift, you must attend Sign-Up Sunday at your designated time, no exceptions.
Please see the Madison House website for confirmation of dates, times, and locations above as well as further information.
