Job Shadowing

Radiography

All candidates are strongly encouraged to job shadow with either a registered or student technologist in a hospital or clinical setting prior to the selection interview.

Job shadowing is your opportunity to experience your desired career close up.  You will be able to follow a professional in the field of your choice and see what they experience during a typical day.  This is your chance to see what is required of certain healthcare positions, ask questions, and see if this career is a good fit for you.  Job shadowing is recommended for all the programs that Cox College offers. 

CoxHealth is pleased to offer job shadowing experiences for our community. All job shadowing requests and hospital tour requests must be submitted to the CoxHealth Education Center at least one week prior to the commencement of any scheduled shadowing or tour date(s)
