What is shadowing?
Shadowing gives an individual interested in a particular career a chance to see what it is like to be in that field by allowing him/her an opportunity to “shadow” an employee in that line of work. A shadow accompanies an employee as the employee goes about his/her typical job duties. A shadow experience provides a flavor for the job and the environment, but the learning opportunity includes no direct contact with patients, guests, or staff, and is not hands on in any manner. A shadow is generally accompanied by a paid staff member throughout the entire experience and does not complete any tasks on his/her own.
If you are looking for an experience that involves interaction with patients, guests, and a variety of staff, and you are willing to make a longer commitment to get the full taste of the medical environment, you may wish to consider volunteering.
What is the minimum age for a shadow?
All shadows must be at least 16 years of age at the start of the shadow experience.
