We have begun the safe, phased return of volunteers to all MD Anderson campuses. At this time, we are committed first to returning all active volunteers to onsite positions through our phased position activation plan.
New volunteer recruitment for onsite volunteer positions is currently paused. Plans are underway to begin recruiting new volunteers in the fall and the application process will be updated on our website at that time.
If you are a cancer survivor or caregiver and are interested in volunteering now, you can join our myCancerConnection one-on-one phone support program.
Volunteers are often called the heart of MD Anderson because they play an important role in our mission to make cancer history. Volunteers work alongside faculty and staff to help our patients and caregivers by providing comfort, hope, support and referral to institutional resources.
When joining MD Anderson’s volunteer workforce, you’ll become part of a diverse group of volunteers who enhance the patient experience.
Our volunteers are:
- Compassionate, motivated, committed and trained
- Good communicators with a desire to help patients and caregivers
- Diverse in age, gender, ethnicity and socio-economic background
- Adults and college students
- Some have had a personal or family experience with cancer
