Helping You Decide a Career Path
St. Vincent encourages Career Shadowing for students to assist in choosing on a career path that is right for you.
To get started, first get in touch with the appropriate contact for the area you with to shadow in. View a full list of contacts.
Your contact at St. Vincent will direct you to the required information, forms and next steps you will need to start your career shadowing experience. Completed forms should be returned directly to your point of contact.
In many cases, you will be required to identify a professional member of our staff who will serve as your sponsor during the career shadowing process. In clinical areas, your sponsor is responsible for communicating the purpose of your observation to each and every patient who is part of the career shadowing experience and must have verbal consent from the patient prior to you observing the interaction. The patient is given an opportunity to decline participation in the career shadowing experience. This meets not only personal considerations but also HIPAA requirements.
