We at the Northeast Kentucky Area Health Education Center are very excited to assist you in your shadowing experiences and on your path to become a health professional.
In order to qualify for job shadowing opportunities with the Northeast AHEC, you will need to complete this Job Shadowing Application and submit a copy of your immunization records (which includes 2 MMR’s and a flu vaccine if shadowing between October 1 through March 31). You will also need to submit the results of a Quanti-FERON Gold TB Blood Draw Result or a current (within the last year) Two-Step TB Skin Test result. A Two-Step TB Skin Test consists of one TB skin test given and read by the health professional who administered the test within 48 to 72 hours and one additional round of TB Skin Testing administered and read within 7 to 21 days of the first TB Skin Test. COVID-19 vaccination uploads are now optional.
Applications can be returned via online form, or by fax, email or mail; you may hand deliver it as well. Also, please dress appropriately when visiting the hospital for your orientation and shadowing experience.
Upon receiving your completed application, I will contact a preceptor to take you as a shadowing student. After confirming with your preceptor, someone from our office will then contact you to set up an orientation meeting. Following completion of orientation, we will verify a start date and time and you will be allowed to begin your shadowing.
Please note, shadowing experiences at St. Claire HealthCare are limited to 40 hours per year.
If you have any questions or concerns about shadowing you may contact me any time! We hope you enjoy your time shadowing with the Northeast AHEC and look forward to accommodating you throughout your journey of becoming a health professional.
