Wellspan Health offers several job shadowing opportunities in Adams County for individuals in high school (grades 10-12), college and those considering career changes. The goal of the program is to give students the opportunity to observe a professional in a particular field of interest to gain insight into the healthcare work environment and day to day operations. Certain restrictions do apply in some areas. The job shadowing experience is designed to give an overview and is not a program to be done in place of a for-credit internship or to fulfill clinical requirements.
High school student shadowing requests must be approved through a guidance counselor. Students in high school may submit the request below and the human resources department will be in contact with the school to arrange your shadowing day(s). A confirmation letter will be sent to your school contact person with the details of your shadowing experience.
On average, a student can expect be in a particular area for two to four hours per visit, limited to two observations a semester (maximum 16 hours per year). If additional shadowing hours are requested, those requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If you have specific questions please contact WellSpan Human Resources Department at (717) 337-4197.
To allow sufficient time for scheduling your shadowing opportunity, please try to make arrangements for the shadowing program at least three weeks in advance.
