Student Opportunities at Quad Cities Area Hospitals
UnityPoint Health – Trinity hospitals offer amazing student experiences and educational opportunities for individuals interested in healthcare careers. Whether you're looking for clinical or non-clinical offerings, we provide them in several hospitals and clinics throughout the Quad Cities area, including Bettendorf, Moline, Muscatine and Rock Island. Explore our offerings below.
Types of Student Experiences
In many instances, job shadow experiences are 1-12 hours in length and are set-up directly between the student or individual and the provider or clinician. If you have difficulty locating the appropriate contact information for a provider or clinician in the field you are interested in, please contact our Student Program Coordinator at Yvette.Work@unitypoint.org for assistance.
Once a provider or clinician has agreed to oversee your job shadow experience, onboarding materials will be sent to you via email for completion. These onboarding documents must be returned at least 10 days prior to your desired job shadow experience.
Note: Job shadowing does not meet the requirements for programs that require clinical contact hours, internship hours, or volunteer and community service hours.

Nursing clinical rotations allow unit or floor access to groups of nursing students who are accompanied by one or more faculty members and are arranged between our student program coordinator and the students' academic institution. They occur at regular intervals throughout the semester and require an affiliation agreement between Trinity and the school. Onboarding materials will be emailed to students and faculty members 60-90 days prior to the scheduled rotation, and these documents must be returned no less than 30 days prior to the desired start date.
