What is an Observer?

An observer is an individual who will “Shadow” a healthcare professional for anywhere between one day to eight weeks. The observer does not have to be a medical student, but must show some interest in pursuing training in the healthcare field. During the observership placement, the individual must not have any patient contact and cannot be directly involved with patient care. The observer is not covered by any insurance (malpractice, WSIB). Observership placements at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre are not part of any curriculum. The observer will not receive an evaluation at the end of a placement.

 

Please note that it is the observer’s responsibility to connect with and secure a preceptor in advance to applying for an Observership.
