Job Shadow Program (Observation-Only)

What is Job Shadowing?

Job shadowing provides an opportunity for a student to observe a healthcare professional performing daily routines. During this time, the student may ask questions about educational and job requirements, as well as the qualities needed to be successful in both the specific field being shadowed and healthcare in general. An experience such as this can help students  decide whether a career in healthcare is their calling and what type of healthcare career they want to pursue.  In addition, job shadowing can provide students with observation hours necessary for college.

Who can participate?

High school students (age 16 and up), college students, and adults interested in healthcare careers are invited to apply for Memorial’s job shadow program. 

When can I apply?

Job shadow periods will now be offered twice per year. The 2022 periods are as follows:

  • Summer shadow period (May 1, 2022- August 31, 2022) 
    Applications will be available March 1 – August 1.
  • Winter Break shadow period (December 5, 2022 through January 20, 2023)
