AHEC Job Shadowing

More than 200 students each year gain healthcare experience through the Eastern Montana Area Health Education Center (AHEC) at RiverStone Health. We coordinate job shadowing experiences for high school students and college students who want first-hand healthcare experience. We can set up a shadowing experience with physicians, physician assistants, registered nurses, pharmacists or public health professionals. We also assist in planning medical, dental or pharmacy rotations for students in healthcare professions.

Job shadow participants must complete HIPAA (privacy) training, participate in an orientation session and have proof of a TB current (within the past year) test, if they intend to job shadow for more than two weeks. TB tests are available at RiverStone Health Immunization Clinic. If you are interested in a job shadowing experience, please complete an application and submit it to: ahec@riverstonehealth.org

Montana offers many options to pursue a degree leading to a healthcare career.  You can explore those possibilities through Montana institutions for higher education in our Pathways to Health Careers in Montana.
