Job Shadowing

If you are interested in a future career in healthcare, you may experience St. Luke's through our Job Shadowing program. Job shadowing at St. Luke's Hospital is a great way to get a "behind-the-scenes look at the daily role and responsibilities of healthcare professionals. In providing this opportunity, we hope you gain valuable insight about professions that interest you as well as other jobs that interact with the person you are shadowing.

We have two locations: Chesterfield and Des Peres, Missouri (both are in the St. Louis area) and are not affiliated with any other St. Luke's Hospital or hospital system.

Job shadowing is available for individuals ages 16 and older. However some units have additional requirements.

We offer a one-time, 4-hour shadowing opportunity. Due to demand, we cannot schedule repeat visits.

Shadowing is scheduled on week days, usually between 8:00 a.m. and Noon; however times may fluctuate based on the department/division.

NOTE: All requirements must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to your requested shadow date.
