Job Shadowing

Job shadowing

A brief educational work-based experience for high school or post secondary students, or adults with a bona fide educational interest. This experience generally lasts from 2 hours to 3 days and introduces the individual to a particular job or career by pairing the student with an employee or clinical faculty member. Students and/or other individuals will follow/shadow the employee as he/she performs normal work activities. The individual may observe and ask questions but will not perform patient care duties. Areas within MUSC available for observation opportunities will be at the discretion of the University.  Students must be at least 14 years old (16 years old in Operating Room areas).

During the months of May, June and July, job shadowing in the Medical Center is limited to internal requests from MUSC managers and faculty.
