RECRUITMENT: THE MAPS VOLUNTEER PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW VOLUNTEERS AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH QUARTER.
Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions for any questions or concerns:
The MAPS Volunteer Program looks for dedicated and hark-working volunteers who are serious about making a difference for patient safety. We want responsible and reliable volunteers who are able to provide great quality and reproducible observations for RRMC hospital administration. Because we invest so much time and energy in the training of our volunteers, we only want serious and dedicated volunteers who will get the job done in the most professional and sophisticated manner possible. Please review the responsibilities and commitment that we expect from you as you further explore our website and volunteer program. Thank you.
