If you are interested in seeing what a job in the medical field is like, we offer job shadow opportunities for many areas in our facility. Our staff is eager to meet with you and show how a career in the medical field can be rewarding and fulfilling.
Arrangements for job shadows are made through the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) office (907) 458-6416. We ask that you give our office at least two weeks to arrange your job shadow to accommodate the departments' staff and schedule.
To apply for a job shadow experience you must be at least 14 years of age and submit a completed application (PDF) to:
Fairbanks Memorial Hospital
1650 Cowles St.
Fairbanks, AK 99701
Phone (907) 458-6416
Fax (907) 458-6488
Due to our obligation of ensuring safety to our patients and employees, your application will be processed through the online State Abuse Registry Search. It is also required that you read and understand the Introduction to Healthcare Guidelines (PDF).
Once accepted into the job shadow program, you can spend no more than eight hours daily (four hours on nursing floors) as a job shadow. However, you can spend time in more than one department as long as it does not exceed eight hours per day. The AHEC staff will work with you to confirm your job shadow schedule. If for some reason you have to reschedule or cancel your job shadow, please call 24 hours in advance.
Please report to the AHEC Office on the day of your job shadow, where you will be issued a temporary ID badge that must be worn at all times while you are at FMH/DC and should be returned to the AHEC Office at the end of your job shadow experience.
