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 experience allows individuals to "try on" a career for a few hours before investing dollars and time in formal education. Job shadowing at Upland Hills Health gives participants a better understanding of healthcare careers.

Please read the following guidelines, and our Job Shadow Procedure below, before contacting the Human Resources Department to schedule your shadow experience. Do not delay. It takes two to four weeks to coordinate your job shadow experience.

Guidelines for Participants

  • Participants must be age 16 or older. (Persons under age 16 are given an opportunity to take part in a structured facility tour rather than a job shadow experience.)
  • Participants under 18 years of age require parent or legal guardian signatures on the Job Shadow Agreement.  Applications without appropriate signatures are not accepted.
  • Vaccinations for measles, mumps, rubella (MMR); pertussis (Tdap); and seasonal influenza (if shadowing during flu season October 1-April 1) are required.
  • Job-shadowing Students must read and adhere to the job shadow procedure and agreement, including the dress code section, and our Code of Conduct.

How to Get Started

1) PLEASE READ: Please read carefully our Job Shadow Procedure.
2) PLEASE APPLY: Please print, complete, and submit the following Application. Your completed application must be received two weeks prior to your arrival for the job shadow experience. Mail the application to:

A Health Career is the Right Choice

When you think of health careers, what do you visualize?

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. The total number of 65-year-olds will surpass the number of 18-year-olds by 2016 and medical technology is constantly improving and lengthening lives. You can become part of this fascinating, rewarding field.
