To all in our community interested in a job shadow/observation within Providence Alaska:
We have re-opened job shadows/observations on a limited basis, while continuing with our commitment to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Specifically, we are considering requests from students who are currently enrolled in a college/university and are required to observe as part of a program. Please contact the Community Partnerships Coordinator with requests and for information on whether you can be accommodated.
Please note, in addition to the documents listed on this page, we will also require students to complete a COVID-19 Attestation form and to agree to being screened for COVID-19 symptoms before beginning each day of observation. Students will be required to follow all Providence protocols for masking, distancing, and hygiene.
Thank you for your understanding.
Community Partnerships Program
The goal of our Providence Community Partnerships Program is to raise awareness about health care occupations. Career presentations, job shadows, and mentorships provide opportunities for individuals to gain valuable insight into various health care occupations and make better informed decisions about their future.
Working in partnership with Alaska school districts, colleges, universities and agencies, Providence has created exploration opportunities in nursing; medicine; radiology; pathology; physical, occupational and speech therapy; respiratory therapy; dietetics; pharmacy; health information services; genetic counseling; and social work. The Community Partnerships Program serves a diverse population of individuals, from K -12 to post-secondary students, as well as adult learners looking for a career change. Individuals who participate in this program oftentimes go on to pursue careers in health care.
For Available Opportunities
Educators, career counselors and students may contact the Community Partnerships Coordinator for more specific information on available observation and career presentation opportunities and student requirements for observations / job shadows.
Providence Professionals Encouraged to Become Involved
Providence health care professionals who may be interested in sharing your talents and gifts as a mentor (for 1 – 60 day job shadow experiences) or as a presenter are also encouraged to contact the Community Partnerships Coordinator for information on ways to become involved.
