We offer the opportunity for students to have job shadowing experiences. Our job shadowing program includes a short term, unpaid career exploration opportunity where a student is able to observe a professional and ask questions about their career.
Only scheduled clinical students are permitted in:
- The Women & Newborn Unit (3 West)
- Emergency Department
- Operating Room
Who can participate?
- Due to patient safety and privacy rights, we are unable to accept students under 15 years old.
- Students who are 15 years old are only permitted in non-clinical areas.
- Student 16 and older are permitted in clinical and non-clinical areas.
What will I learn?
Our job shadowing opportunity helps foster an awareness of the skills required for a specific healthcare career. This is an observation only experience in select departments within Memorial Health System, based on availability. Participants will have the opportunity to observe and interact with a healthcare worker as they go about their daily activities. Hands-on patient care isn’t part of the experience and is not be permitted.
