Career Job Shadow Request
St. Vincent encourages Career Shadowing for students in the clinical phase of their training. We assist those trying to make a decision on a career path in an effort to promote all clinical and non-clinical healthcare careers.
Students who request to do Career Job Shadowing must be at least 16 years old, a current high school student or a current college student, but not yet enrolled in a professional healthcare program. Students applying for shadowing must already have a confirmed sponsor/preceptor who has agreed to allow the student to shadow with them. Shadowing students may not shadow more than 8 hours in a single day and no more than 50 hours in a calendar year.
We require a complete copy of your immunization records include TB and annual Influenza vaccine. You are required to submit these records as a single PDF file within 24 hours of submitting your shadowing request. Immunization records should be e-mailed to: CMEdepartment@stvincent.org
