Welcome to Atrium Health Floyd Student Experiences

We believe excellent clinical experiences, under the guidance of specially trained professionals, help prepare students for successful careers in healthcare. We encourage motivated students to learn more about the opportunities we offer at Atrium Health Floyd.

Atrium Health Floyd requires all students and instructors to be credentialed through our credentialing service, Acemapp before being allowed onsite for any student experience. Students will upload documents (see below) to Acemapp for each requirement. After uploading the required documents, any documents that are denied will have a reason noted. Check your Acemapp account to see why a document may have been denied. Upon approval of ALL requirements, you are then considered "compliant" and can get your ID badge to be onsite. ID badges are required for clinical experiences of any type and may be picked up at security on the 1st floor/basement of the hospital.

Please note your student experience request does not guarantee a placement. Clinical experience requests are prioritized and based on education program requirements and/or availability of a student slot.

Types of Student Experiences Offered at Atrium Health Floyd:

Observing/Shadowing – is an “observation only” experience to learn about healthcare careers. The student is assigned to a provider, one-on-one, for their shadowing time period. High school students, current Atrium Health Floyd volunteers, and college/grad students are eligible. High school students are allowed 40 hours max if they meet the criteria. High school students, contact your school's work-based learning coordinator. To apply for an Observer/Shadower experience you must register in ACEMAPP. If you are seeking experience for school-required credit, your school is required to create your account as you are seen as a student and do not qualify for observing/shadowing.

Preceptor – is a one-on-one, student-to-provider experience that is required for college credit and has a required number of hours. Students currently enrolled in healthcare programs are eligible. Preceptor requests are set up by the student’s school coordinator in ACEMAPP, the credentialing service used to verify required documents. A current affiliate agreement (contract) must be in place with the student’s school to be onsite for preceptorship. Your school must be an approved affiliate partner. Contact your school coordinator for more information.

Clinical Rotation – is a pre-determined, specific set of days and/or times that a healthcare student or group of students must complete to satisfy school program requirements. Students currently enrolled in healthcare programs are eligible. Clinical rotations are set up by the student’s school coordinator in ACEMAPP, the credentialing service used to verify required documents. The current contract must be in place with the student’s school to be onsite for rotation. Contact your school coordinator for more information.
