The Museum of Human Disease is a pathology museum at UNSW Australia. The Museum contains over 2,700 specimens of diseased human tissue and plays a key role in the education of medical students at the university. It also attracts over 11,000 external visitors each year to school curriculum and public programs.

Attendance at an evening training session is required. This will introduce volunteers to the museum, explain their role and cover key communication skills. Training is in March, June and September each year. Students must participate in the Museum's volunteer program before doing extra hours under the UNSW Leadership Program.
The Museum is open from 10am - 4pm Monday-Friday. This means volunteers are needed in the January/February period as well as term time. Volunteer 'shifts' are usually 2 hours and volunteers register for shifts online through the Volunteer Local website. The website contains a description of the shifts and the day/time you'll be needed.
