Sparrow offers lots of exciting careers, and there’s no better way to discover what we do than through our Job Shadowing program.

Who is it for?

Sparrow’s Job Shadowing program is open to students (age 15 or older) and adults who are interested in exploring health care careers.

What is it?

This is a single day experience, lasting about two hours. While here you’ll learn about Sparrow and see, first hand, just what’s involved in the type of career that interests you. You’ll follow along with Sparrow caregivers, who will answer your questions to help you decide if this is the right career for you.

How do I sign up?

First, you need to complete and submit an online application. If you are under 18, your parent or guardian needs to complete a consent form.

When we receive your application, we’ll schedule you for an orientation session. Following the orientation, we’ll arrange for your job shadowing assignment. This process can take anywhere from 2 - 6 weeks depending upon the amount of applicants. Please plan accordingly if you have to meet a deadline.

When is orientation?

2013 Orientation sessions will be held in the Sparrow Professional Building once a month. After the application has been received you will be contacted by HR via email to be scheduled for an orientation time.

For further information call 517.364.5829. Job Shadow applications for Sparrow Clinton and Sparrow Ionia sites will be passed on and scheduled by their Human Resources departments following the receipt of your application.
