Students – Job Shadows

Shadowing the daily duties and responsibilities of our staff may help you decide if you wish to pursue a career in healthcare. Shadow experiences vary in length, but are typically 3-4 hours.

Additional hours may be available for application into a school program (such as physical therapy, radiologic technologist or respiratory therapy). Job shadows are available in many of our departments and will be scheduled based on department availability for students age 16 and older. Shadows in surgery are reserved for undergraduates and students in clinical programs.

I am extremely grateful that it worked out for me to shadow your physicians. I now know what I want to do after college!




An orientation to our facility is required prior to participating in a job shadow. Please review our Student Orientation Presentation and complete the Student Orientation Packet.
