June 2, 2021 Update: Ascension Wisconsin has decided to reopen job shadow experiences. The application remains closed as we determine COVID specific requirements and protocols. The application will reopen soon.
This web based application can be filled out anytime. Applicants can save an unfinished application and return later to complete the submission. The application includes 4 Steps:
Step 1: Observation Requirements - Review the requirements of arranging an observation and confirm you understand and agree to the requirements.
Step 2: Observation Application - Submit information about the observer including basic demographic information, contact information, volunteer/associate status and emergency contact information. Sponsor information must be included as well including name, role/position, and contact information.
Step 3: Health Requirements - Observers who are a current volunteer or associate will skip this step. All other observers will be required to submit information and documentation showing proof that they meet each of the outlined health requirements. Documentation must be uploaded and attached - the files must be readable and clearly show proof the requirement is met. Review the "Health Requirements for Observers" section below for information on what is required.
Step 4: Final Confirmation - Observers are asked to review and agree to a number of terms as outlined on the final step of the application. Observers under the age of 18 must have parental permission to participate in an observation.
At any point, applicants are welcome to select the "Save and Return" option at the bottom of each page. Applicants will be emailed a link to their application and can return at any point to complete and submit the application.
