Learn More about Careers in Health Care Through the Observation Program at UH Cleveland Medical Center

The Observation Program at University Hospitals is an opportunity for individuals who are interested in healthcare careers to shadow a hospital worker (sponsor) and learn more about the field. To start, individuals must submit a request to observe, specifying their preferred departments. Once approved, individuals will be asked to submit an application. See below for additional details and requirements.

Applicants are required to complete an application, online compliance training, adhere to all health screening requirements and show proof of healthcare coverage. Upon confirmation of observation experience, observers will be required to show proof of 2-Step TB screening within 6 months of experience, documentation for COVID-19 vaccinations, and documentation for influenza vaccinations (if observing during flu season). Applicants are permitted to observe for 30 calendar days within a year.

If you are 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. If you are a University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center employee and are interested in becoming an Observation Coordinator for your area please complete the new GPS training course titled “Observation Training GM-38 Online”. Once completed and approved your name and email address will be added to the list for Observers to contact.
