Volunteer Opportunities

Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital & Clinics

Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital & Clinics does not have open recruitment for potential volunteers. Volunteers are only recruited directly by faculty or staff to work on a specific project for a specific time period with a defined set of responsibilities.

At this time, we are not accepting students for practicums or internships from educational programs outside of UCSF. Any activity specifically performed for academic credit or professional advancement is not considered volunteer service.

If you have not been recruited, there are still other opportunities to volunteer at UCSF. For more information, contact the Volunteer Services Department at UCSF Medical Center at (415) 353-1196.

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center

Zuckerberg San Francisco General does not place volunteers in psychiatric care operations, but opportunities to volunteer time and effort in other parts of the hospital are plentiful in the service, clinical and research environments.
