Volunteen Program Canceled for 2020

The Volunteen Program has been canceled for the summer of 2020, due to the on-going Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health crisis. The University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center regrets this decision, but we did not feel it was prudent to move forward with the program at this time.

We look forward to having the Volunteen Program in summer 2021.


UM Charles Regional Medical Center offers a Volunteen Program. This volunteer experience is a great way for a teen who is 14-17 years old to learn about the healthcare environment as a possible future career.

The Volunteen Program provides:

  • Experience working in a professional setting at a young age.
  • Exposure to hospital atmosphere to help a teen to consider a career in the healthcare field. 
  • Excellent reference for future education or job application.
  • Satisfaction in serving human and community needs.
  • Opportunity to obtain further information about career fields.

What will I do as a Volunteen?

Volunteens learn about the hospital setting while assisting staff members and patients. Duties may include assisting clinical staff with patient care duties, performing administrative tasks, providing excellent customer service, and so much more.

You will spend between 4 and 30 hours each week during the summer at the University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center. 

How do I get involved?

If you are between 14 and 17 years old, please fill out the Volunteen Application. Once you have completed the online application, print the Volunteen Reference Forms and Volunteen Permission Forms. References must be returned prior to the deadline noted on the application.

We review all applicants to determine eligibility for training. We will set up an interview with you at UM CRMC to discuss your interests. The Volunteen Permission Form should be brought to your interview.

If you have questions about the Volunteen Program or need assistance, please call 301-609-4095.
