Alternative opportunities

The job shadowing experience is designed to be a one-time observation only experience, lasting two to four hours. The job shadowing experience does not fulfill any clinical or internship requirements; nor does it provide any hands- on experience. Job shadowing is for individual participants only, and is not available for groups of students. The medical center campus offers a number of outreach programs that may be a better alternative to job shadowing.

Tours - Tour information is available on the UNMC Campus Tours Web page.
