Volunteer Opportunities

If you've got the time, we've got your passion.

Each year more than 1,000 individuals from throughout New York City devote their time and energy to adding a dimension of care for patients at New York Methodist Hospital. NYM volunteers bring a wealth of compassion, talent and skill to our more than 25 unique and enriching programs, where they serve as patient caregivers, family liaisons, logistical navigators, interpreters, infant cuddlers, community health educators and in many other capacities. Whether you are a pre-health student, performing artist, working or retired professional or just want to share your skills and "give back," volunteering at NYM offers the chance to pursue a passion and enrich numerous lives—including your own. We treasure our volunteers and respect the contributions they make to the overall NYM patient experience. Come join our team!

  • Most of our programs are currently full. We will be accepting applications for fall placements in early July.

  • To learn about all of our available volunteer opportunities, please visit our Volunteer Programs page.

New York Methodist Hospital's Department of Educational and Volunteer Resources recognizes the benefits of inspiring future healthcare professionals as they consider the journey to various positions in the field. Through internships, volunteer opportunities and the Summer College Intensive Program, pre-health students can immerse themselves in day to day activities, exploring and gaining exposure to areas of interest. Depending on your volunteer program, you may also have opportunities to attend workshops and lectures by NYM health professionals or participate in community health education events. These opportunities can provide a rich context for the first steps to a lifelong career. Begin the journey at NYM!
