Following the initial interview, background and reference checks are performed before the candidate begins volunteering.
All new volunteers are required to attend an orientation class and receive a tuberculosis test. Orientation is a three-hour program that includes a basic health screening, review of Lahey Lahey Hospital & Medical Center policies, summary of volunteer guidelines, and a hospital tour. In addition, identification badges and uniforms are distributed during orientation.
