Observation Program

Learn More About Careers in Health Care Through the Observation Program

The Observation Program at University Hospitals is an opportunity for individuals who are interested in health care careers to shadow a hospital worker (sponsor) and learn more about the field. Applicants are required to complete an application, online compliance training, adhere to all health screening requirements and show proof of health care coverage. Applicants are permitted to observe for 30 calendar days within a year.

Applicants interested in observing in the OR must be at least 18 years of age. Observation experiences in an operating room are limited to 10 experiences for students under the age of 21 in any one calendar year. To observe in the OR you must also watch our OR video explaining our processes and take the OR quiz. Please turn in your quiz along with your completed application to your Observation Coordinator.

Applications are being processed through an Observation Coordinator. Please review the list below for an Observation Coordinator processing applications in the area you are interested in. Observation Coordinators have the right to refuse an observation experience if it conflicts with department schedules or no one is available to coordinate the experience. Applications can be obtained from the Observation Coordinators and through the link posted under “Helpful Links”.
