Background: In addition to specific organizations of emergency management, the presence of volunteers is needed in emergency situation. The volunteers come from different professional background and provide many services. In this regard, this research aims to study the importance and priority of professions in volunteer activities in hospitals.

Method: In this applied- development research which the method is descriptive, the researchers made questionnaire used for data collection based on five-point Likert scale. The statistical population includes managers, emergency doctors and nurses at hospitals of Tehran University of medical science. Also 180 people were selected by using random sampling and Cochran formula. To analyze data, descriptive and inferential statistics (one-sample t-test, Friedman and chi-square test) were used.

Findings: The results indicated that among the professions, medical careers (emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses, doctors and nurse assistant) are the most appropriate professions for volunteers. Among the non-medical careers (managers and employees of organizations, installation and army forces) can be useful in volunteer activities for hospitals and medical centers.

Conclusion: According to the results, people familiar with the relief activities could play significant role in volunteerism. The non-related jobs to health issues would have been inappropriate for volunteer activities.
