Campus volunteers are an integral part of UCSF. Individuals volunteer as a public service, for civic and humanitarian as well as personal development reasons. Volunteers freely donate their services without promise or expectation of pay or future employment. UCSF provides these opportunities as a public service.
It is critical in protecting the interests of both the University and the volunteer that their work status as “volunteer” be distinct and separate from the status of paid employees. However, it is the responsibility of the volunteer’s department to oversee their work to ensure that volunteers comply with all applicable University policies as well as all State and Federal laws. To assist departments, a Campus Volunteer Packet with guidance and applicable forms has been assembled.
Persons participating in the provision of clinical care cannot be enrolled under this program. Please contact the UCSF Medical Center Risk Management office at 415-353-1842.
The HIPAA checklist for visitors and observers (who are NOT considered volunteers) are available here.
*NEW POLICY* Please review the guidelines for Academic Affairs policy APM430 before submitting a volunteer packet to your HR Service Center.
Please also review the EH&S policy: Minors in Laboratories
