Experiences Available through Upland Hills Health
Upland Hills Health staff enjoys participating in different career fairs, in our communities or in our local schools! If your school or organization is hosting a career fair, please let us know and we will participate if we are able.
This opportunity is most often coordinated through high school teachers or guidance counselors. Specific staff at Upland Hills Health coach students directly for career development activities, such as resume review, e-portfolio review, mock interviews, auditions, or other career development-related activities.
A staff person from Upland Hills Health visits your classroom to talk with students about their job, personal journey, job duties and responsibilities, skills and knowledge needed, or a specific curricular topic. We will work with you on topic and presentation.
We will host you or your students for a tour of our facilities and operations to highlight careers within specific departments of Upland Hills Health.
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 time and money in formal education.
At Upland Hills Health, part-time positions are available in a variety of departments. For many high school students, part-time summer or after-school jobs are their first experience of the “world of work” and may indirectly expose them to what it’s like to work in a healthcare environment. For others, part-time positions may work best around family or college schedules, in more skilled positions.
This is a group tour situation based on a specific scenario, designed to highlight the roles of staff across various departments of Upland Hills Health. In this tour, the group will follow a “patient’s” journey of care and learn about the departments involved, the roles in those departments and how they interact. Example scenario: a patient fell from a ladder due to low blood sugar; the tour follows the “patient’s” journey in the Emergency Department and highlights EMS, nursing care, patient admission staff, radiology, lab, information technology, therapy, and pharmacy.
