Auxiliary members serve in more than 30 different services on the main Anne Arundel Medical Center campus and in the many satellite centers spread around the community. Volunteers at AAMC are asked to give one shift per week at a regular day and time.
Shifts are typically 9am to 12:30pm or 12:30 to 4pm. There are opportunities for evening and weekend volunteer work. Volunteer assignments are based on the volunteer's interest, schedule, and the hospital's needs.The Auxiliary has a 3-step application process.
- Applicants must submit an application and formal background check form (which requires your Social Security Number.)
- Onboarding: The next step is to attend one 2-hour onboarding session preparing you in AAMC Volunteer Services protocol. These sessions will be held twice a month. Please contact the Auxiliary secretary at 443-481-5050 to sign up.
- Orientation: When your background check has been approved and we find a suitable open position for you, a member of the Volunteer Placement Committee will call you to discuss an assignment and schedule an appointment for your individual orientation. At this appointment we will issue an ID badge and uniform, initiate required health testing, and collect a $50.00 administrative fee. The appointment lasts approximately 1.5 hours. You may begin volunteering upon completion of your initial medical requirements and onboarding.
- AAMC is a tobacco-free campus and has a non-smoking policy.
- An administrative fee of $50 includes use of uniform and administrative costs. The fee is payable in cash or by personal check at the individual orientation appointment. (Please do not send fee with your application; do not bring to onboarding session.) Volunteers must return uniforms and ID badges if unable to continue volunteering. No funds are returned.
- Volunteers must attend an Annual Service Meeting.
- Volunteering rarely leads to paid employment. Anyone interested in employment should check out available positions on the www.aahs.org website or visit the Human Resources Office, Room 350, Wayson Pavilion.
- AAMC’s Employee Health Office will administer all necessary tests, blood work, and vaccinations at no cost to the volunteer. All volunteers must be screened for tuberculosis; be immune to measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (chickenpox); and receive the seasonal flu vaccine unless medically contraindicated. Volunteers on clinical services must be immune to Hepatitis B; some clinical services also require immunity to pertussis (whooping cough.)
