Short Term Shadow

jobshadow.jpgTRHS welcomes short term shadowing for any individual from a middle school through adult age who desire to observe the functions of a particular career or job within the health care environment. The shadow experience is usually 8 to 12 hours (not to exceed a total of 24 hours) for a particular career/job area.  

How we “Shadow”
An employee allows you to follow them through their normal activities.  You may not provide or engage in direct patient care but you can see how the particular job provides care or works within a healthcare environment.  We do not schedule shadowing in the Operating Room, Pediatrics or in Obstetrics for individuals who are under the age of 18 years.

Requirements:
  • Student Immunization Records (click here)
  • Citizenship Status & Copy of Driver’s License or student ID
  • Orientation
  • For shadowing with a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant or certified nurse anesthetist, the student must contact the provider or the provider’s practice manager to arrange a commitment to host.
  • For other discipline areas, email us at students@tiftregional.com and let us know the kind of job, dates you have available and your contact information so we can communicate with you in making arrangements.
