Volunteer/Internship Opportunities

Our volunteers and interns are dedicated members of the Sheppard Pratt Health System team and are provided with an opportunity to work alongside our doctors, nurses, teachers, clinicians, and other professionals. The quality of every patient’s stay is enhanced by their efforts.

Volunteer Services offers unpaid volunteer and internship experiences in a variety of areas, including our inpatient units, day hospitals, data management, schools, gift shop, resale shop, and clerical support areas. We ask for a minimum three-month commitment and will work with your interests and availability to find the best placement for you. Candidates must successfully complete a two-stage interview process, orientation to the Health System, tuberculosis testing, and flu vaccination.
