We thank all who have applied for volunteer positions at New York Methodist Hospital for the summer. At this time we have filled most of our programs. Please click here to view the programs that still have openings. We also encourage people who are interested to check this page in mid-July when we will once again be accepting applications for Patient Care and other programs.
Each year over 1,000 individuals from throughout New York City devote time to adding a dimension of care for, and service to, the patients at NYM. Volunteering at any of our healthcare facilities provides you with an opportunity to effect and improve other people’s lives. At the same time your service can bring you closer to your career goals, support your college and university education, open new doors to fulfill your interests, and allow you the opportunity to use your existing skills and talents. Come join our team!
For our year-round programs NYM asks that volunteers commit to a minimum of 150 hours and six months of service, unless otherwise specified.
This time commitment allows the volunteer to make a real impact on his or her project area and provides the greatest return of personal satisfaction.
When volunteers reach this milestone they become eligible for documentation of hours completed as well as letters of recommendation to prospective schools and potential employers.
Due to the number of applications we receive, we are unable to respond to everyone. We will respond to applicants who we determine to be good matches for programs which have openings.
