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||
|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.|
|Student information sheet||Each student wishing to participate in the shadowing program will be asked to fill out and return by mail the forms listed below. These forms will allow our coordinator to more accurately schedule the student.
Please list three (3) dates in order of preference that are at least two (2) weeks from request.
All forms must be received before a shadowing experience will be scheduled.
