Job Shadowing

If you are interested in healthcare as a career, we would like to allow you to observe, or “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 time and money 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.

Guidelines for Participants

  1. Participants must be age 16 or older. (Persons under age 16 are allowed to take part in a structured facility tour rather than a job shadow experience.)
  2. Participants under 18 years of age require parent or legal guardian signatures on the Job Shadow Agreement. Applications without appropriate signatures are not accepted.
  3. Job shadow experiences are typically 3-4 hours in length, with a maximum of 8 hours. If you require a longer experience as part of a college prerequisite, inquire about an extended observation experience.
  4. Participants must be fully vaccinated for measles, mumps, rubella (MMR); and pertussis (Tdap).  Seasonal influenza vaccine (if shadowing during flu season October 1-April 1) is also required.

How to Get Started

  1. Carefully read our job shadow procedures. Job-shadowing students must adhere to these procedures, including the dress code and code of conduct.

  2. Please print, complete, and submit the job shadow application, including a written description of your interest or intent for a career in health care. Do not delay – It takes two to four weeks to coordinate and approve your job shadow experience. Send completed applications to:
