If selected, the prospective volunteer is scheduled for volunteer orientation. General orientation and completion of required health work is mandatory for all volunteers. The health work consists of TB testing and proof of the volunteer's immunization to rubeola, rubella and chicken pox. This health work can be done by Dayton Children's employee health nurse at no cost to the volunteer.

Department-specific orientations will be conducted by the staff in the volunteer's assigned department.
