Welcome to UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and Metro Denver area clinics

Thank you for your interest in Volunteering or scheduling a Shadowing/Observership experience at the University of Colorado Hospital and metro Denver clinics.


As a Volunteer, you are joining a dedicated team that provides the highest quality health care in the #1 Hospital in Colorado. Through the generous gift of your time, skills and personal interests, you supplement the work of staff and providers in offering many special services that are important to our patients, families, visitors and the hospital staff. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, care for your community and meet new people and you will soon see, the greatest reward for volunteering is that special feeling that comes when you give of yourself for the betterment of others. We welcome you as a member of our medical center family and thank you for choosing UCHealth as your place to volunteer and share your time.

As a Shadower or Observer with UCHealth, you are embarking on a learning opportunity we are excited to provide. Our Shadowing and Observership programs build on this hospital s rich legacy and mission to educate future administrative, clinical and research leaders in health care.

With gratitude,
Jenny Ricklefs, MS
