Returning Volunteers

December 2022 Update: Volunteer Services is pleased to announce that the application for new, general volunteers is now open for the Winter session! Please visit the New Volunteers page to view volunteer requirements, then click “General Volunteers” for instructions on how to apply. Please note, we can only accept a limited number of applications based on available volunteer placements, so it is important to apply as soon as you are able to meet the requirements. Volunteer Services continues to accept applications for pre-approved volunteers. See the link below for more information about the pre-approved volunteer application process.

If you have ever volunteered at Michigan Medicine, or applied to do so, you are considered a returning volunteer. Restoring your volunteer account is done through the Michigan Medicine volunteer portal. To update your volunteer profile, please follow the steps below: 

  1. Log into your account here: https://volunteers.med.umich.edu/. Your user ID is your email address. Use the password you created previously or use the prompt to create a new password. 
  2. If you are due to review any agreements, upon log-in you may be prompted to electronically view and agree to some items. 
  3. Click on the "Applications" tab and select "Volunteer Services Annual Update Plus."  Answer the question at the top by choosing "Return to Service after a Leave of Absence." Much of the remaining form will auto-fill with your information. Please correct anything that needs to be changed and complete any items that are blank.
  4. Watch for a next steps email from Volunteer Services.
