Shadow a Health Care Professional Program

Observe Medical Professionals at Work

Are you interested in a career in health care? Mercy's Shadow a Health Care Professional Program is a great way to observe and explore health care fields.

As part of our job shadowing program, you will have the opportunity to watch Mercy's medical staff performing clinical duties as an observer only. You will not do any work or interact with patients.

Shadowing Program Requirements

To participate in job shadowing, you must be at least 16 years old. You may shadow for up to 24 hours per quarter, with each observation being four to eight hours in length.

Shadowing experiences beyond 24 hours can be arranged if you must complete an educational requirement. For long-term shadow experiences, a TB test and criminal background checks (FBI and BCI) are required.
