Job Shadowing

Job shadowing is a brief period of observational experience that pairs you with a Parkview professional in order to provide more education about a particular career within our healthcare system. This program is not intended for vendors or medical product representatives.

Job shadowing experiences are:

  • Designed for high school, college, and workforce individuals who are interested in career exploration.  
  • Four - eight hours long depending on individual need. 
  • Limited to 40 hours per semester
    • Longer options may be considered, depending on course requirements and availability of Parkview professional.


Observers must be 14 years or older to participate.

  • Some departments require observers to be 18 years or older and/or enrolled in healthcare program in order to shadow. 
  • Complete the Job Shadow Request Form to submit your request for consideration.
