Level 2: Career Planning and Job Shadowing (20 Hours)

At the second level, participants can shadow PCHS employees to learn what the day-to-day responsibilities are in different PCHS positions. Most disciplines covered in the Passport Series are available for job shadowing. In addition, a member of our Human Resources team will sit down to find out what jobs you’re interested in, describe what the requirements are for each position, and explain what your next steps will be to pursue a career in health care.

PCHS offers a broad array of volunteer opportunities and will work to match you with a role that suits your interests and skill sets. Through the volunteer program, you can gain additional experience in the health care industry while making a difference in your community.
