Job Shadowing

We are please to announce the reopening of our job shadowing program. Due to continuing COVID-19 presence, job shadowing opportunities will be approved on a case-by-case basis. We will make every effort to accommodate you as we have space and staff available. Job shadow candidates must be sixteen or older; the Emergency Departments, Surgery and Intensive Care Units cannot accommodate students under the age of eighteen. Applicants must be 18 AND a high school graduate to shadow in any part of Children’s Hospital. Shadowing in COVID-19 units, suspected COVID patients’ rooms or COVID floor care areas are strictly prohibited. Shadowers must wear a self-provided surgical mask at all times. Goggles face shield or other PPE in patients’ rooms will be required regardless of COVID status.
