• Frequently Asked Questions

    What kind of paperwork do students need to complete prior to starting a rotation?
    This will depend on the student’s area of study and the school they attend. All students are required to complete some general paperwork. However, additional requirements are likely. Please contact the PCMC Student Placement Coordinator at least two weeks (three to four weeks preferred) prior to your anticipated start date in order to avoid delays. 
    Where do students park?

    Due to the limited space in our parking terrace, students must park offsite during peak business hours. Peak business hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. During peak business hours, students are expected to travel to Primary Children's via Utah Transit Authority services (bus, TRAX, etc.) and will not have alternative parking solutions provided. TRAX day passes are available for students who do not receive passes through their respective schools. The UTA schedules can be found online at http://www.rideuta.com.  

    Since parking during non-peak times, as well as Saturdays and Sundays is not as difficult, students coming on those days will be able to park on site (excluding the first level) for their clinical experiences.    

    How do students receive a badge?
    Once the student has completed the necessary orientation materials and returned them to the Student Placement Coordinator, a badge is issued. Badges are printed in the security office, Monday–Friday, 8am–4pm. It is a good idea to have all paperwork and other requirements submitted at least one week prior to your rotation in order to avoid delays. Please plan ahead. 
    Can students job shadow?
    Yes, shadowing opportunities are available.  Please refer to the Job Shadowing section for information on how to set this up. 
    What is the dress code for students?

    Per Intermountain Healthcare’s Professional Appearance policy, “Employees are expected to present appearance appropriate to the nature of their jobs.” Students should follow the same policy. For further questions on these standards, please contact the department or employee with whom you’ll be working.   

    Can high-school students job shadow at Primary Children's Hospital?
    In order to job shadow or participate in a student role at Primary Children’s Hospital, you must be a high school graduate and at least 18 years of age. Once these criteria are met, placement is possible.
