OBSERVER INFORMATION

An observer is a person who is in the facility to shadow a specific person(s). The observer will have no direct physical contact with the patient, nor would he/she, in any way, direct or participate in the treatment of the patient. This person is in the organization to observe only. You must be at least 16 years of age to observe in our facilities. 
  • A typical observation experience in any Logan Health department is 4-8 hours.
  • Most communications from the Student Department are done via email so please check the email you provide in your application for any updates, approvals or any documentation needed to complete your request.
  • We are closed on weekends so if you plan to observe on a weekend, please make sure you have received approval and obtained your observer ID badge or made arrangements to do so, before you schedule your observation date and time
