Job Shadowing
The DCH Health System does not offer shadowing opportunities to members of the general public. Due to federal, state and accreditation standards, individuals who have access to DCH patients and their information must have an official relationship with DCH. Such individuals include  

  • Employees

  • Volunteers

  • Students affiliated with a school or college with whom DCH has an official relationship

These individuals complete an orientation about applicable regulations and sign an agreement to follow them. Their supervising practitioner must also sign the appropriate forms acknowledging responsibility for the shadowing individual.
