Volunteer Training

Your volunteer training will depend on where you are placed. Some departments require new volunteers to "shadow" a seasoned volunteer in order to learn necessary skills.

When you agree to volunteer, you become a representative of Dartmouth-Hitchcock. The following policies apply to both employees and volunteers. In order for the Volunteer Services to assure that patients and their families are receiving quality care from volunteers, we have annual skill requirements. Thank you for taking the time to read these policies. Please feel free to contact Volunteer Services if you have any questions.

New volunteers

Before you can begin to volunteer for Dartmouth-Hitchcock, you must either attend our full-day orientation, or read our "self study packet" of Patient Confidentiality and Other Dartmouth-Hitchcock Policies and sign off that you understand and will comply with these policies.
