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.
