Volunteering provides a wonderful opportunity for career exploration, as well as fulfillment of community service requirements. Information for our 2019 program will be online at the beginning of February 2019.
The purpose of our volunteer organization is to promote and advance healthcare to patients and their families. We welcome individuals of all backgrounds and abilities who wish to volunteer.
Applicants will be asked to submit information and meet certain qualifications including being a non-nicotine user. Each Baylor location has its own requirements, so the volunteer process may be different at various facilities. Requirements may include a general health screening, background check (in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act), submission of personal references, and patient care training (if the nature of the volunteer service requires patient contact).
*There are different volunteer opportunities at each Baylor hospital.
