Sparrow offers lots of exciting careers, and there’s no better way to discover what we do than through our Job Shadowing program.

Who is it for?

Sparrow’s Job Shadowing program is open to students (age 15 or older) and adults who are interested in exploring health care careers.

What is it?

This is a single day experience, lasting about two hours. While here you’ll learn about Sparrow and see, first hand, just what’s involved in the type of career that interests you. You’ll follow along with Sparrow caregivers, who will answer your questions to help you decide if this is the right career for you.

How do I sign up?

First, you need to complete and submit an online application. If you are under 18, your parent or guardian needs to complete a consent form.

Job Shadow Application for Adults

When we receive your application, you will be notified by the email that you indicate on your application. You will then receive an invitation to join a site called ACEMAPP. This site will collect all required documentation and have you complete a mandatory orientation to job shadow. Following the documentation completion and orientation, we’ll arrange for your job shadowing assignment. This process can take anywhere from 2 - 6 weeks depending upon the number of applicants. Please plan accordingly if you must meet a deadline.

When is orientation?

Orientation will be all electronic. After your application has been received and you have been invited to join ACEMAPP, your orientation and test will need to be completed online.

If you are a minor...

The minor Job Shadow Parental consent form can be found in the ACEMAPP system and must be signed by a parent or guardian and uploaded to your job shadow ACEMAPP account.
