Thank you for your interest in shadowing at the University of Colorado Hospital and metro Denver clinics. UCHealth is taking proactive measures to protect its patients, visitors, and healthcare workers by expanding visitor restrictions and policies at its acute care facilities and ambulatory clinics. While we understand that visitor restrictions are inconvenient, they provide an additional layer of protection for everyone. At this time, UCHealth is allowing shadowing only in the following circumstances:

  • As part of a job interview when it would be beneficial to help the applicant to better understand the role.
  • ORfor UCHealth staff/providers to shadow another UCHealth staff/provider.
  • Shadowing is allowed if it will take place in an environment that only requires a surgical face mask and social distancing can be maintained.Shadowing is not allowed in any other areas where additional PPE is needed, such as an OR.


This opportunity may be withdrawn at any time due to a change in COVID. The extended observation program remains suspended. Please know we have your welfare as well as the welfare of others at the forefront of our patient safety plans.
