TidalHealth Peninsula Regional
Hello and thank you for your interest in TidalHealth Peninsula Regional. TidalHealth Peninsula Regional welcomes motivated individuals interested in the medical field. The experience is intended to give individuals an opportunity to observe how healthcare is delivered in your area of interest. This is an observation only and patient contact is prohibited.
TidalHealth Peninsula Regional offers observation/shadowing experiences to those 18 years of age and older. Those under the age of 18 must meet a minimum requirement of being a senior in high school and must obtain a parent or guardian’s signature on the Observation Only Agreement. To start the application process, follow the steps below. For additional information, call the Medical Education Coordinator at 410-912-2912 or email [email protected]
Step 1: Find a Provider
Our organization does not match students requesting an observation with one of our providers. Please visit our Find A Doctor page search physicians and advanced practice providers by specialty. You will need to make contact with our providers to arrange for a potential observation/shadowing experience.
Step 2: Submit Observation Agreement and Documentation
A separate agreement is required for each provider you will be observing.
Once you have established a provider, please print and complete the Observation Only Agreement and submit along with the required ID to Jill North, Medical Education Coordinator at [email protected]g. Please note that you must obtain the provider signature prior to submission. If the provider you will be observing is an Advanced Practice Provider, i.e. Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, Certified Nurse Anesthetist or Certified Nurse-Midwife, you must obtain their signature along with their Supervising Physician’s signature. Once all paperwork is received and approved, the Medical Education Coordinator will contact you and issue clearance to begin your observation/shadowing experience. An ID Badge will be issued and required to be worn during your observation.
Step 3: Surgical Orientation (if applicable)
Observation/Shadowing experiences with a surgeon requires the completion of an Operating Room (OR) Orientation. Please contact Susan Lynch at [email protected] to schedule. Following successful completion of the OR Orientation, Susan will sign the designated area on the Observation Only Agreement.
