Application Overview

Hands that serve …. Hearts that care 

Dear Applicant,

We are excited that you are interested in volunteering at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), and we want to make your volunteering experience rewarding for both you and the staff of our medical center.

To become a volunteer of UMMC, you first need to complete our Volunteer Application and submit it to the Volunteer Services Department. You can find our mailing address and fax number at the
bottom of this page. There are a few requirements that must be met:

  • Once we have reviewed your information, one of the volunteer coordinators will contact you to
    arrange a time for your TB Skin test and background check. You will need to present a valid state-issued photo identification or passport. These are performed at no charge.
  • Applicants 16 and 17 years of age must provide a copy of their Immunization Record when TB skin test is administered. Immunization record should reflect that you received 2 Varicella shots OR had the Chicken Pox. If you had the Chicken Pox, you must provide a Varicella Titer (blood test from your doctor proving your immunity to the Chicken Pox). A parent or legal guardian MUST accompany the applicant in order to get the TB skin test.
  • All volunteers must be vaccinated annually against influenza in advance of the flu season unless they are eligible for and have an approved medical contraindication or an approved religious restriction. The vaccine will be offered free of charge through our Student Employee Health Department. You may choose to have an outside provider. If so, written documentation on the letterhead of the provider must be provided.
  • Volunteer orientation is required for all of our volunteers. Our orientation is a wonderful time for you to meet other volunteers, discover our requirements and to get to know our team. See the schedule for a date you can attend. These classes start promptly at the assigned times.
