The Job Shadowing Programme is available for pre-tertiary students who are interested to find out more about the healthcare sector. The programme, which can span from two days to two weeks, will give insight to students on what it is like to work in a hospital. Shortlisted individuals will be given the opportunity to witness first-hand the challenges and satisfaction derived in the healthcare industry. 

As attachment vacancies are limited, priority may be given to junior college students, especially to those who have graduated or are completing their final year. 

We invite applicants who are interested to enroll for job shadowing at NUHS. Please kindly contact the respective institutions here.
