Job Shadow & Internship Possibilities

Job Shadow

A short-term experience, less than one day, where a student observes an assigned employee and asks questions about his or her career. This is an experience with no assistance in patient care.

Participants in a job-shadowing experience must complete several forms. Please download the Job Shadow Application below and return to:

UM Health-West Hospital Volunteer Services
Attn. Jennifer DeVries
P.O. Box 916
Wyoming, MI 49509


This is where a student’s course work in class is applied to a directly-related work experience for one semester in a specific department. An internship involves a set number of hours on-site at the hospital.

If you’re interested in either of these programs and want more information, call 616.252.7009.
