Those who choose to job shadow at Guthrie do so for a specified period of time, in a clinical or non-clinical setting. This role does not involve a service commitment or salary, and is non-accredited. The observer is linked with a supervisor and has no responsibility for the patient. 

Those wishing to shadow should secure a preceptor/provider to shadow on their own. Students that are looking for clinical shadowing opportunities can use the Find a Provider section of the website. Once you have secured a preceptor to shadow you need to place a request below, no later than 60 days in advance of your start date, so that you can be onboarded for your experience at Guthrie.
