What are the student’s daily activities? The students schedule varies each day of the week but each day will begin promptly at 8 a.m. unless the student opts to job shadow surgery which starts promptly at 6:45 a.m. Days can be very long as we aim to provide as many opportunities as possible. Generally, most activities end before 7:30 p.m. Because of the long days, lights out wil be at 10:00 p.m. We encourage the students to be cognizant of this and to get enough rest. What is job shadowing? Job shadows are educational experiences within various departments of the medical facility. Students should experience the services and
functions of each department. The activities planned for the students
may vary daily based on the case load, emergency situations,
personnel availability and other issues. During job shadowing, the
students are under the supervision of the department contact or their
designee within the specific department they are assigned.

Any student requiring additional disciplinary action or attention
will be immediately dismissed from the program and sent home.
All information regarding patients must remain confidential. Students

mindful of appropriate use of program equipment and recognize that
all video footage wil be reviewed by program staff. Individual
presenters may require students to respond to quick assignments to
demonstrate what knowledge they have gained from the
Keeping a journal is a valuable and commonly used reflective learning tool. Journaling prompts you to notice what is happening, to think about experiences and to reflect on there meaning. At the very least, keeping a journal gives you a record of what you have accomplished and provides a reference for ideas and discussion. Health care professionals are constantly observing the health, actions or experiences of others. They record these observations in a patient’s file. The written observation must be clear and descriptive so that other health professionals using that file can understand the background of a patient. Keeping a journal provides you an opportunity to practice the skil of making observations about yourself or others in a health care environment and recording them. Some suggestions for topics to discuss in your journal may include:
• What did you do on a typical day in a particular department?
• Describe the best thing that happened today?
• What do you feel was your main contribution to the
• What was the most difficult part of your volunteer service?
• If you were the supervisor, would you have the students do
anything differently from what you are doing?
• Write about a health care worker you found interesting or
• Write about yourself. How do people perceive you?
• What do you feel like when you are in the health care facility?
• What compliments have you received and what did they mean
• Did you take or avoid some risk this week? Were there things
you wanted to say or do that you didn’t?
• What happened that made you feel you would like or not like to
Please remember, patient confidentiality is vital. Please do not
use patient names when writing your observations. (Example:
write, “Patient X was feeling better today.”

Although social networking websites, like Facebook and
MySpace, are growing and gaining in popularity, posting
something online today, may cause you some problems in the
Although they provide obvious benefits, there are also concerns
associated with such sites that students need to understand. Studies
suggest the majority of students say or do things online they would
not want their parents or other adults to see, especially when it
comes to social networking sites.
Provocative photographs, pictures that depict substance abuse, and
explicit photos and videos, are being published online in increasing
numbers. Besides providing far too much personal information online
for friends, this type of information may in fact place you at risk for
predators or those who may have ulterior motives.
There are a number of emerging trends that suggest cause for future
concern for students. Employers are increasingly turning to social
networking sites (SNS) to evaluate candidates for jobs. The privacy
waivers SNS users agree to in order to use Facebook, MySpace and
others, offer little protection to the user. Uploaded photos and videos
may be available to “non-friends” and third party applications could
have full access to all uploaded photos and videos. A compromising
image could cause an applicant to not be considered for a position.
Some statistics suggest a high percentage of employers now include
social networking sites in their background checks, resulting in
“qualified” employees not being considered for hire.
According to the Job Outlook 2007 Fall Preview survey conducted
by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), 11%
of respondents reported they plan on reviewing social networking
profiles when considering job candidates. More than 60% said the
information they obtained online has some effect on their decisions
Although it may be fun to post that picture from a concert or party, the
consequences of that photograph may be far reaching.
According to a September 2008 Kaplan Survey , social networks are
so accessible that college admissions officials are turning to them
and uncover positive or negative information about applicants in an
• 10% of admissions officers acknowledged looking at social
networking sites to evaluate applicants
• 38% said that what they saw “negatively affected” their
views of the applicant
• 25% of schools checking social networks said their views
• 21% of colleges used social networking sites for recruiting
prospects and gathering information about applicants
Once something is published or posted online, don’t assume it can be
deleted. Although the original post may be removed, it is important to
note that the image, video or posting may be stored elsewhere on
someone else’s computer or server, it may have been printed out, or
it may have been forwarded through email to others.
Think twice before posting something online. What is posted
online today, may cause issues or problems for you in the
