Job shadow opportunities at Erlanger are 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. To shadow at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, you must be 18 AND a high school graduate.

To shadow a physician, please contact the UT College of Medicine.

To qualify for job shadowing, you must:

  • Complete the Job Shadow application

The job shadow application and required health records must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the desired start date to allow for coordinator and clinical department review.  Records should be emailed to: jobshadowing@erlanger.org.

Upon coordinator and departmental approval, you will be contacted to complete HIPPA training, code of conduct and the confidentiality agreement.

Job shadow candidates may not enter a clinical area until all paperwork is complete and an identification badge is issued.
