We're happy to offer job shadowing opportunities to our community. 

Our program aims to help students: 

  • Observe the daily routines of health care workers 
  • Identify career interests in health care 
  • Gain awareness of the academic, technical and personal skills required in health care professions 
  • Develop an understanding of the critical connections between school, work and goal attainment. 

Job shadowing is designed to be an observation-only experience, lasting two to eight hours. The experience does not fulfill any clinical or internship requirements nor does it provide any hands-on experience. Job shadowing is for individual participants only and is not available for groups of students. 

Who is eligible to participate?

  • High school students age 16 and above (parent or guardian signature is required for all applicants age 16 or 17)
  • College students
  • Individuals exploring a second career
All requests must be submitted at least one week prior to the beginning of any scheduled shadowing.
