Thank you for your interest in The UCLA Health Volunteen Summer Program. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to limit individuals coming into the hospital, we will not be accepting any Volunteens for summer 2021.
Patient Transport assists in the Patient Transport office at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. They are responsible for discharging patients, assisting in transfers, and helping the patient transport staff. This is a great opportunity for students to see all areas of the hospital and get clinical exposure. Shifts are available seven days a week.
Wayfinders are student ambassadors. Wayfinders are stationed at hospital entrances and greet each visitor/patient along with providing wheelchair and escort assistance. Wayfinders must be friendly, proactive, and have good communication and customer service skills. 2-hour shifts are available Monday-Friday between 8:00am - 4:00pm. Due to the standing nature of this position, 4 hours will be rewarded for 2 hours of Wayfinding service.
Volunteers help deliver patient mail and newspapers. The assignments can change each shift depending on needs of department . Volunteers are assigned to the Volunteer Office for one, four-hour shift per week between 9:00 am - 4:00 am on Monday through Friday (weekends are not available).
