Observations & Clinical Rotations

We are excited that you have chosen Covenant Health for your medical experience. Whether you are just beginning your higher education or into your clinical rotations and practicum, Covenant Health is a great place to begin! We have a variety of opportunities for clinical students depending on their stage of education. You must be 18 years of age or older and be enrolled in a post-high school health professions program, a residency/fellowship, or be a licensed medical professional in order to request observation/rotation privileges.

Students are responsible for finding a healthcare provider within our system and getting the provider’s approval as part of the application process. To help locate a provider, you may search for a provider. Just follow the prompts by choosing a Specialty area. You will see a list of providers within Covenant Health for that particular specialty and their contact information.


An observer is a student that will simply shadow the medical professional. In this situation, you have no hands-on learning. You simply watch, listen and learn. Observations are a perfect way to determine if you are in the right profession. Observations also can help you narrow down the field of medicine where your interests lie.

Observer Application

Clinical Rotation/Practicum Student/EMS

The student that is to the point in their education that requires hands-on education will need to complete the Clinical Rotation/Practicum Student Application or EMS Application. Students under the supervision of physicians will be able to perform only actions/procedures authorized by the physician supervisor and approved by the hospital. Authorized actions/procedures are subject to the Rules and Regulations of the Covenant Administration and applicable state statutes. The students may not perform any functions, duties or procedures that are outside the scope of their training program. Any College or University wanting their students to rotate at Covenant Health must have an Affiliation Agreement with Covenant. For contract information contact Keith Harvey, Manager of Contract Operations,, (806) 725-0535.
