for High School students in the Vermont counties of Addison, Chittenden, Franklin & Grand Isle
SHADOW DAY is a one day Health Careers Exploration Program in partnership with Fletcher Allen Health Care and Northwestern Medical Center. Shadow Day offers an opportunity for high school students, in grades 10 through 12, to develop comfort in the health care field, shadow a health care professional in his/her work setting (one 2-3 hour job shadow), and to explore, as well as strengthen skills and resources needed for such a career. Students will also receive confidentiality and infection control training, and interactive presentations by health care professionals.
If selected for Shadow Day, there is a $25 fee (some scholarship money may be available.) Lunch is included and snacks are provided. Students must arrange for their own transportation to and from the event.
