About the Program




The Job Shadowing program is closed and will reopen in February 2023.

Job shadowing experiences are available to high school and college students and adults who have an interest in the health-care industry and would like to observe a professional in a health-care setting.

All shadowing experiences must be coordinated by Volunteer Services.
