A shadow/observation experience is for observation without hands-on interaction. It's limited to 40 hours or less (within one year) and you are not required to be enrolled in a school. Note that applicants must be 16 years of age or older.

Individual Learning Experience

An individual learning experience is a hands-on experience with Mercy patients, coworkers, equipment and/or data (e.g. clinical or non-clinical rotation, project or research). This experience requires you to be enrolled in a school program that has an academic affiliation agreement with the site you are wanting to do the learning experience.
