Fremont Health - Student shadowing program guidelines

Shadowing is observation only. There is no hands-on experience with the shadowing program
Age limits Job shadowing is available to high school (junior/seniors) no less than 16 years of age, or college students.
Shadow areas

A student may rank three (3) areas they wish to shadow on the student information sheet. We will make our best effort to place the student in their preferred occupation if possible, but first choices may not always be available.


Recommendations for students
  • Students must adhere to the Northern Nebraska AHEC and Fremont Health Shadowing Dress Code
  • Inappropriate behavior will not be allowed
  • Students need to provide their own transportation to their designated shadow site.
  • Personal valuables should be left outside of the facility
  • Cell phones will not be allowed.
Confidentiality Due to the natures of the new HIPAA (health insurance portability and accountability act of 1996) regulations, confidentiality is a must. All students must complete and pass the confidentiality quiz online before shadowing will be scheduled. Confidentiality is very important - names of patients and their cases cannot be discussed with family or friends.
