Student Volunteers & Job Shadow Students

There are many students who are pursuing healthcare and are wanting or needing experience. We offer to students, potential students, and working professionals the opportunity to learn about their desired careers in health care through this short-term program.

  • Student- Volunteers will do approved practical work in a healthcare setting or use their time for job shadowing purposes. There is no hands-on patient activity.
  • Students who require this for school programs MUST have an active Affiliation Agreement with Owensboro Health. If there is not a current agreement, the student is responsible for applying far enough in advance to complete the legal process.
  • Anyone over the age of 18 requires a Criminal Background Check.
  • These students are categorized as a Volunteer because this program is unpaid.
