Volunteer Opportunities at Mount Sinai

The Mount Sinai Department of Volunteer Service salutes its more than 1,000 volunteers, who uphold our longstanding and rich tradition of providing support to Mount Sinai and the surrounding community. With a wide range of placements—from inpatient and ambulatory areas to offices and laboratories—our dedicated team plays a vital part in the Mount Sinai mission of excellence in patient care, education and research.

Patient-Related Placements

Patient-related volunteers visit patients and assist staff in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Volunteers in these settings help lessen the stress for patients and their loved ones. This provides an excellent opportunity for those wanting to learn more about and gain experience in a hospital environment.

Student Research

Basic Science volunteers assist the laboratory staff with carrying out research techniques. Clinical Research volunteers assist the research staff with a variety of tasks, including data entry and collection, and compiling study documents. Both are exceptional year-round opportunities for students interested in a career in medicine.

Administrative Support

Volunteers are placed throughout the medical center in administrative offices and ambulatory care areas. Administrative support volunteer opportunities are designed to familiarize individuals with the structure and work flow of a complex medical setting. This is an excellent opportunity for those who are interested in helping out in a busy medical environments.
