Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center provides answers to frequently asked questions about the Job Shadow Program.
Yes. If you are under 18, your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must sign the Job Shadow Application Form in order for you to participate in the job shadow program.
Fax your completed registration form to 513-803-6114.
The registration form should be submitted at least four weeks prior to the date in which you would like to shadow, but not more than three (3) months in advance. The Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Job Shadow Program will attempt to meet your first choice for attendance, yet there is a 25 person limit for each available date. All attempts to schedule you with the requested department will be made, but substitute departments may occur due to staff schedules and availability.
Yes. Patient Care units that serve high risk patients will not accept Job Shadow Program participants. Examples of some areas include all Intensive Care Units, Hematology / Oncology and the operating rooms.
As long as your form is received at least four (4) weeks prior to your desired job shadow date, your application will be reviewed to ensure that all requirements have been met. We are only able to accommodate 25 individuals each month, so applications are considered on a first come, first serve basis. Provided a health care professional is available in the area where you have requested an observation, you will be contacted by phone one to two weeks prior to an event to confirm your participation.
Hospital staff will meet you inside your assigned room on the morning of your Job Shadow experience. (See Welcome Center for directions to assigned room if needed.) All Job Shadow Program participants should arrive by 7 am that morning in order to participate in the program's education and health screening component. Students who fail to participate in this part of the program will not be permitted to participate.
