Job Shadowing: How to get started

Welcome and thank you for your interest in job shadowing at Upland Hills Health!

If you are interested in healthcare as a career, we would like to give you the opportunity to job shadow a member of our staff for some "on-the-job" insight. A job shadow opportunity allows students to "try on" a career for a few hours before investing dollars and time in education. Job shadows at Upland Hills Health give students a better understanding of healthcare careers.

A Health Career is the Right Choice

Doctors? Nurses?

Math? Science?

That is only the 'tip of the iceberg.'   There is a huge variety of occupations in the health industry. You can find a career just right for you in health care!

Healthcare workers are currently in demand in Wisconsin. The demand now is nothing compared to what the future demands are projected to be.
