Additional Information:

  • If the Lancaster General Health Human Resources Department must cancel or postpone a shadowing appointment, our goal is to provide approximately 24 hours notice.
  • If, for any reason, you are unable to attend the program, please contact the Human Resources Department at (717) 544-4915 as soon as possible. Anyone failing to cancel will not be rescheduled.
  • You will be asked to sign confidentiality statements to protect our patients.
  • Please dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes (dress code will be provided).
  • If you appear to have a contagious illness, you will be asked to contact Human Resources to reschedule.

Inclement Weather:

  • If you are unable to travel due to the weather, please contact the Human Resources Department.
  • If a student’s school district has canceled school due to snow and/or ice, the shadowing experience will also be cancelled for that day.
  • If a student’s school day start time is delayed, Human Resources will assume that the shadowing experience will take place that day.

Job shadowing has closed, and will re-open in September 2018.
