• Kaiser/ SJUSD Summer Preceptorship (Job Shadow)

    The Kaiser Job Shadowing Program takes place in Kaiser Facilities over a four week period during the summer.


    2020- San Juan Unified formed an agreement with Kaiser to enroll 10 students in this program.

    Any current junior (11th grade) student enrolled in a SJUSD school can apply.



    A preceptorship is a period of practical career experience and training for a student that is supervised by an expert or specialist in a particular field.


    Students are placed in workplace learning environments within Kaiser facilities for 20 hours per week for 4 weeks. Additionally students attend weekly classes to improve workplace soft skills. Over 13 Kaiser departments participate and students experience real life work situations through a rotation style format. Students are viewed as a part of the team. Although the experience is strickly observational, inquiry and discussion with Kaiser medical professionals is expected. Students complete a weekly journal, assigned classroom activities and assignments, and offer a final TED Talk style presentation.
