SMMC: Volunteer



Thank you for your interest in volunteering with San Mateo Medical Center. Volunteers are an important part of our team, helping to support staff, enhance the patient experience, and bring smiles to those they meet.

We receive a large number of volunteer applications for our San Mateo location and we work hard to place everyone as soon as possible. 

We also are looking for volunteers to support our clinics in Daly City, Half Moon Bay, Redwood City, and South San Francisco. If you are interested in volunteering at one of these locations, we will email you and set up a virtual meeting.

Due to a high volume of interest, we may not be able to place all applicants at this time. Thank you for understanding. 

Volunteer Requirements

Due to COVID-19, all volunteers are required to have documented proof that they are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination.

A person is up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination if they have received all recommended doses in the primary series of vaccination and one booster when eligible (6 months after Pfizer of Moderna or 2 months after Janssen). Getting a second booster is not necessary to be considered up to date at this time.

Become a Volunteer

 Use the volunteer form below to send us some basic information. We will contact you with the next steps if you are selected.

If you have questions, call our volunteer office at (650) 573-2797, Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Or, email us any time. We look forward to connecting with you soon. 

Please note that we have limited volunteer opportunities. If you are accepted, you will receive a confirmation email and phone call providing the following:

  • Volunteer Application
  • Confidentiality Statement
  • Interview Date

Thank you for your interest!
