 Observership (Shadowing)


An observership or shadowing experience at Trillium Health Partners is an opportunity for interprofessional learners, licenced physicians, and allied health professionals to extend their clinical experience under the close supervision of a member of the hospital’s medical, clinical or professional staff.

An observer is not involved with direct patient interaction and has no clinical status at Trillium Health Partners.

Consideration for observerships within the hospital is dependent on the individual request and the type of learner requesting the placement.
