Student Volunteer Program

We encourage University of Arizona students to experience the world of poison prevention.

The Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center is launching a new volunteer program for interested University of Arizona students. If you are a student required to obtain community service hours for application to a health sciences graduate school, or looking for exposure to a unique health care arena, this is a great opportunity.  To complete an application, please follow the instructions below:

STEP 1: Apply

Click on the "Volunteer Application" link below the Student Volunteer Program header. Complete the application and submit. The application is not live yet, please check back soon. 

STEP 2: Application Review

Once we review your application, a staff member from the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center will contact you to schedule a brief meeting. 

STEP 3: In-Person Meeting

Prior to the meeting you must complete the Arizona Poison Control System Poison Prevention Training (www.azpoisoncenterstraining.org). Be sure to save the certificate at the end and send by email to Laura Morehouse (morehouse@pharmacy.arizona.edu). During the meeting we will discuss active projects, availability, and volunteer goals to determine if we are the best fit for your needs. 

STEP 4: Begin Volunteering!
