Important Notes Before You Start
- The following application is for job shadowing at Phelps Health’s various hospital departments.
- We CANNOT schedule job shadowing with physicians. If you want to job shadow a physician you need to personally make arrangements. However, if they practice at Phelps Health you will still need to complete this application.
- This process is only good for the first 24 hours of job shadow at Phelps Health. Additional job shadowing requires completion of an online training.
Step #1: Let Us Know You Are Applying For Job Shadowing
First, let us know you are starting the job shadowing application process. Fill out the form below to get an email from our Student Education Coordinator. They will be your point of contact for the scheduling & application process.
Step #2: Schedule A Tuberculosis or PPD Skin Test (page #5)
In order to job shadow at Phelps Health as well as many other facilities, a TB or PPD skin test is required. You can schedule this at your doctor’s office or local health department.
These tests take 2-3 days to complete. You will need to bring your application and have your healthcare provider fill out page #5, both at the initial injection and at the test reading.
Step #3: View HIPAA Presentation & Take Quiz (page #3)
Patient privacy is VERY important when working in health care. This applies to job shadowers as well as employees. Patient privacy involves more than just names and numbers, it includes what kinds of conversations you can have and even what questions you can ask.
Make sure to cover the HIPAA materials carefully, and complete the quiz located on page #3 of the application.
Step #4: Send Completed Application & Contact Us For Scheduling
Let us know your application is on it’s way. Contact your Student Education Coordinator by phone or email to get your job shadow on the schedule. You will have their contact after filling out the form in Step #1.
