Student Shadow

Shadowing opportunities are now closed, but will resume this fall.

Please check back in September for Fall 2014 shadowing opportunities.

The University Health Center offers student shadow opportunities on a limited basis each semester. While we try to accommodate everyone, priority will be given to students needing to fulfill a course requirement and to juniors and seniors. Priority will also be given to students who applied the previous semester but did not receive placement.

Please indicate the health care profession you would like to shadow (i.e. RN, MD, NP, PA), as well as the times you have available to shadow. A member of the UHC staff will notify you of your assignment.

Note: All students are encouraged to receive an influenza injection at least 2 weeks before shadowing at the University Health Center.
