Marshfield Clinic Observation Opportunity

Marshfield Clinic Observation Experiences have resumed in a limited capacity based on resources. Marshfield Clinic staff volunteer their time to allow observation of their practice.  Because of the voluntary nature of the experience, meeting application requirements does not guarantee experience.  

Marshfield Clinic Health System defines an Observational Experience as the observation of an employee in his/her professional role with no physical (patient) contact other than airborne exposure.

*Please note, there is a fee associated with applying to this program. If mailing in your application and your wish is to observe in the Eau Claire region, please ensure it is sent to: West District – Student Programs, 2116 Craig Road, Eau Claire, WI 54701.
