Opportunities for Students

 

Student Shadowing:

These are one-day experiences for students considering careers in healthcare. They are not connected to any academic requirement and are set up directly by students.

  • Prevea is suspending student shadowing through May 1, 2020. However, we are committed to providing this important learning experience, so students should contact me after May 1st to reschedule or request their shadow day.
 

Academic Student Rotations:

These are academic experiences for students currently enrolled in medical education programs that last from 2 weeks to an entire semester. These experiences are set up through academic programs and required for graduation.​

  • Currently, academic student rotations will continue as scheduled. We ask that students connect with their preceptors to ensure they are following Prevea workflows and taking appropriate precautions. We do recognize that many academic programs are putting restrictions into place and we will work with students to honor those precautions on a case-by-case basis.
 

Each student and preceptor involved in a shadow or clinical rotation has been individually contacted with updates. Thanks for your understanding, flexibility and partnership during this important time. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Prevea Health offers a variety of clinical education opportunities to qualified students throughout the year, including:

  
 

Clinical rotations

Based on high demand for student placement, Prevea Health has implemented a centralized process for accepting rotation requests and matching with available preceptors.

Beginning January 13, 2020, Prevea Health will use myClinicalExchange to receive NP, PA, CNM and Medical Student placement requests, assign preceptors, and onboard students.
 
The school clinical placement coordinator or individual student can submit a rotation request into mCE. We ask that neither the school coordinator nor student reach out directly to our staff requesting sponsorship as all requests should come directly through mCE. Please work with your school rotation coordinator to use myClinicalExchange. You will not need to pay for a mCE account unless you are accepted for a rotation.

Deadlines for rotation requests are as follows:

  • Summer semester placement: February 14
  • Fall semester placement: April 1
  • Spring semester placement: August 1
 


Shadowing

Shadows/observations are a great way to learn more about careers and specialties in the medical field. Prevea Health offers half day or one-day job shadows. This experience is observation only and no direct patient care is allowed.
