Decatur Morgan Hospital provides job shadowing opportunities for students on a limited basis. You will learn about a job role through observation and interactions with staff. The Job Shadowing and Observation Program provides unpaid, observational hours only. Direct patient care is prohibited for any shadow or student observation.
You must be able to identify a DMH staff member or medical staff member in good standing who has agreed to allow you to shadow them. The Community Relations Department may assist you in identification of DMH staff member. Identification of mid-level providers and physicians must be arranged prior to application.
The following items are required for all individuals requesting to participate in the Shadow/Observation Program:
Please complete the Shadowing/Observation Program application packet, containing the Shadowing/Observation Program Application and the Contract and Shadowing Self Study Orientation. When you've completed all forms return them along with additional paperwork, photo identification, evidence of TB skin tests and proof of immunizations to the Community Relations Department located at the Decatur Campus on the ground floor.
