Please refer to the 2018-2019 Volunteer Handbook (PDF) if you are a prospective volunteer looking to get started or are a current volunteer looking up policy/procedures.
NOTE: There is a mistake in the handbook and the Thursday Information session (9/6) is in the Newcomb Ballroom (3rd Floor) from 4-5 PM and the PD Meet and Greet (optional) is in the same room from 5-6 PM on 9/6.
The doors to the information sessions will close 5 minutes after the sessions begin. After this, you will not be admitted into the session.
Please contact the Head Program Directors at firstname.lastname@example.org with remaining questions after you have gone through the handbook and the rest of our website.
Madison House Medical Services provides various volunteer opportunities for UVA students at the UVA Health System, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, the Charlottesville Free Clinics, New Century Hospice, and Asera Care.
We do not provide direct medical care or offer clinical shadowing experiences. Sign-ups for Medical Services occur only during the Fall semester, and students must commit to a full academic year of service.
Registration opens each semester at 9am on the first day of classes.
In the summer, UVA students will have the opportunity to volunteer at UVA Health System through Madison House. This means that volunteers will coordinate with student Program Directors to count volunteer hours toward Madison House hours.
As in the past, students who complete summer volunteering in good standing may become eligible to sign up early with Medical Services for the following full-year program.
For more information, please visit the UVA Health System: Summer Volunteer Program site. Applications are open January-April, with rolling interviews. Shifts are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
