• Job Shadow Program

    The Job Shadow Program at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center provides experiential learning opportunities designed to help individuals learn about health career options as well as the skills that different occupations require. The program offers a four hour, once a month education and shadowing experience to 20 individuals interested in learning about a specific area in health care.
