Ivinson Memorial Hospital provides opportunities for healthcare-bound students to observe members of our medical staff performing the duties of this occupation. Students are able to see how hospital departments function internally, and how they integrate with the healthcare system as a whole.
If you are interested in coming to Ivinson as an Observation/Clinical Student, please send a completed Observation/Clinical Student Application to our Education Department by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we can accommodate your request. Please note that, while we strive to accommodate all requests, we may not be able to provide observation/clinical opportunities for all students.
Students may request observation up to 48 hours over a period of no more than 12 weeks. Requests for additional time will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
If the request for placement has been approved, all students, prior to hospital placement, must complete the following requirements:
- A letter from an adviser or other approved personnel from the student’s educational/community institution explaining the need for the shadowing experience must be emailed to the Education Department at Ivinson.
- The student must email their immunization records to Education Department at Ivinson. The immunization requirements can be found below.
- The student must complete the online Observation Student Orientation. The instructions to complete orientation will be provided by the IMH Education Department after placement has been confirmed.
After all of the requirements are completed, a confirmation email will be sent to the student and the preceptor indicating that the student has completed all of the requirements and is approved to observe. If the student shows up for observation before all requirements are complete and the confirmation email is sent, the student will be sent home.
