Job Shadowing Information

Observation experience is essential for students pursuing a health care career. Job shadowing allows one to preview professions of interest. Observation also allows one to explore a variety of career settings, such as hospitals, rehabilitation centers, private clinics and schools. Students can shadow virtually anywhere. You can make arrangements with any professional in your interest area.

Contact the professional, let them know you are a UNK student, and request time to shadow. It may take some time to contact health professionals and set up the shadowing experience so allow at least 1-2 weeks before you would like to actually begin shadowing.

Please read the information found in the tabs below carefully and adhere to dress codes, etiquette tips and all procedures. Health professionals are very busy, so please be respectful of their time and expertise.
