If you are interested in a future career in healthcare, you may experience St. Luke's through our Job Shadowing program. We are located in Chesterfield (ST. LOUIS), MO and are not affiliated with any other St. Luke's Hospital or hospital system. As a participant, you will be able to observe the exciting and fast-paced environment where employees have an opportunity to learn and grow. You will also gain a better understanding of your own interests in the healthcare field, as well as seeing why St. Luke's Hospital has been honored as a "Best Places to Work" by the St. Louis Business Journal.
UNLESS OTHERWISE LISTED, ALL STUDENTS THAT SHADOW MUST BE AT LEAST 16 YEARS OF AGE. SOME DEPARTMENTS OFFER SHADOWING TO PEOPLE CONSIDERING A CHANGE IN THEIR CAREER. SHADOWING CONSISTS OF ONLY ONE VISIT (UP TO 4 HOURS) ON A WEEKDAY MORNING TO GIVE YOU A SNAPSHOT OF WHAT THAT CAREER IS LIKE. DURING FLU SEASON (OCT. 1ST TO MAY 1ST) STUDENTS MUST OBTAIN A FLU VACCINE. NOTE: THERE IS A TWO-WEEK WAIT PERIOD AFTER RECEIVING THE VACCINE BEFORE YOU CAN SHADOW. BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF OUR PROGRAM AND THE DEMAND, WE CANNOT SCHEDULE REPEAT VISITS. PARTCIPATING DEPARTMENTS ARE LISTED BELOW.
