Observation Program at UH Bedford Medical Center

The UH Bedford Observation Program is an opportunity for those who are interested in health care careers to shadow a hospital worker (sponsor) and learn more about the medical field. Applicants are required to complete an application, online compliance training and acquire a UH sponsor, adhere to all health screening requirements, and show proof of health care coverage.

Applicants interested in observing in an operating room (OR) must be at least 18 years of age. OR observations 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 the volunteer services coordinator.

If you are interested in observing in Neurology please submit your application to Crystal.Roberson@UHhospitals.org.

Any area has the right to refuse an observation experience if it conflicts with department schedules or if no one is available to coordinate the experience.

If you are a University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center employee wanting to observe you do not need to complete this process. Please make arrangements with your manager and sponsor.
