Volunteer application overview

Most volunteer applications will be processed on a semester calendar (Fall, Spring, Summer). Volunteers will be on-boarded in cohorts by semester. If you are a high need clinical volunteer (MD, DO, DPM, LCSW, LPC, Psychologist, DDS, DMD) your application will be processed within 2-3 weeks of receipt, depending on your specialty you may be on-boarded as soon as possible or added to an upcoming cohort.

If you are volunteering through one of San Jose Clinic’s institutional or academic affiliations, you should have received a separate application link through your program’s administrator or preceptor. Contact them in order to receive the unique application link or send an email to volunteerapp@sanjoseclinic.org for further instructions. For a full list of San Jose’s affiliations click Partners and Affiliates. 

If you are not sure which “volunteer type” you are, please email volunteerapp@sanjoseclinic.org.

application process overview
  1. Apply by the deadline corresponding to the semester in which you would like to start volunteering. 
    Upcoming applications deadlines: 
    • Summer 2023 Cohort: March 17, 2023 (start date: early to mid-June)

  2. SJC departments will review applications to determine if applicants are a good fit. Please note: some departments may reach out for an interview and a meet and greet/tour.

  3. If your application has been accepted, SJC’s Volunteer Team will reach out to you for additional documentation (background check, forms, references, etc.).
    • If you’re a medical provider, SJC administrators will begin the initial Credentialing & Privileging process. This process takes about 4-6 weeks. We will also need to submit an FTCA malpractice application on your behalf, which may require additional time to process.

  4. Complete a general orientation, HIPAA/OSHA training, and EMR training (medical providers only). These can all be done online at your own pace. 

  5. Attend in-person training with your relevant department. 

  6. Begin volunteering!
