Job Shadow Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in participating in a job shadow at UnityPoint Health – Allen Hospital or UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown.

We’re committed to providing educational opportunities for individuals interested in healthcare careers, whether clinical or non-clinical in nature. Our Job Shadow Program is for students or individuals considering a career change or exploration.

Job shadows are not clinical rotations and don't meet the requirements for programs that require clinical contact hours or internship hours, nor do they fulfill the requirement for volunteer or community service hours.
