Shadowing Opportunities

In addition to clinical rotations in the third and fourth year, students can also explore different specialties as early as the first year by shadowing faculty in clinical settings. If you are a student interested in shadowing a doctor, please start by contacting clinical faculty who serve as Field Specific Advising Leads. These professors are all willing to host students for shadowing, or facilitate the process.

Once you’ve identified a date, site, and physician to shadow, please follow these steps:

  1. Students must register at least one week prior to their date of shadowing.
  2. Limit of 2 students per site, per day. If more than 2 students register to shadow at the same site, on the same day, they will be asked to select a new date.
  3. Students must have a green daily symptom badge on day of shadowing.
  4. Students must wear PPE at all times.
  5. Students must not access the medical record.
