Valley Children’s Hospital offers the Job Shadow Program as a means of career exploration with one of our professionals. The job shadowing experience is temporary, unpaid exposure to the workplace in a career area of interest. Job shadow participants will get the opportunity to witness the work environment, occupational skills in practice and overall hospital operations for potential career possibilities.
