Job Shadowing Information

The following information and procedures pertain directly to job shadowing at Phelps Health.  Many other hospitals, clinics, and health systems offer job shadowing and will likely have similar application requirements.

Mid-MO AHEC can offer shadowing opportunities in many hospital departments, but arrangements will NOT be made to shadow with physicians. If you wish to shadow a physician, you will need to personally make arrangements. If that physician spends any time practicing in the Phelps Health system, you must complete and return the paperwork to the AHEC office.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • High school juniors and seniors
  • College students
  • Individuals exploring a second career

You may shadow up to 24 hours under this process; 25 hours and beyond require you to complete PCRMC online orientation modules in addition to the job shadowing application.
