Student Observation and Job Shadow

To help ensure the health and safety of patients, visitors, physicians and staff in our hospital and clinics during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not offering student observation or job shadowing opportunities at this time.

We remain committed to educating the next generation of medical professionals and look forward to resuming these programs in the future.

Northwestern Medicine Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital offers student observation in our nursing and pharmacy departments.

Please Read Carefully

Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital welcomes the opportunity to provide you with a shadow experience within our healthcare system.

It is important to understand that the job shadowing experience provides you the opportunity to observe a nursing or pharmacy staff member performing their job responsibilities, the functioning of the respective department and/or how the occupation or department integrates within the healthcare system. Please note that the observation experiences are only available for up to one day. If you would like an opportunity to observe or volunteer for a more prolonged period of time, you can contact the volunteer office.

Under these guidelines, you will not be allowed to participate in patient care activities, operate equipment, access patient or other records, or perform any other hands-on functions.
