Thank you for your interest in joining the volunteer team at Loyola Medicine. All volunteers will be placed in non-clinical roles; we are unable to place volunteers in clinical roles.

To ensure the safety of our patients, visitors, colleagues and volunteers, all volunteers must participate in a screening/ onboarding process including an updated health screening and background check. This process will take 4-6 weeks to complete. Due to this lengthy process, volunteers are asked to serve on an ongoing basis.

You will be contacted by the Volunteer Services Department to discuss the next steps. Please do not volunteer at our vaccination clinics until these steps have been completed.
