We have 2 types of volunteers. For those here for humanitarian reasons who volunteer at the hospital, the hospital’s Volunteer Services Office maintains any submitted records and clearances (from their private physician). For those here for educational purposes who are considered student interns (they sign an education contract), then we maintain any health-related records and clearances.
