Wellspan Health Shadowing Program

The Wellspan Health Shadowing program allows students in grades 10 through 12 the opportunity to spend several hours with a health care professional in more than 30 different health care areas. The program provides students with one-to-one contact with someone already employed in their chosen career field. Students must meet with the Career Counselor to schedule a job shadow. The program "Introduction to Becoming a Physician" is held on November 13, 2006 and April 16, 2007. During the program, students will meet as a group with physicians to learn about educational requirements, schooling, and fields of medicine. Students will also hear from several speciality physicians and visit several hospital departments. The program is limited to juniors and seniors and must be scheduled through the Career Counselor.
