I wanted to share this Virtual Pre-Health Shadowing that offers shadowing through live Zoom and a certificate after taking an assessment for each session. The zooms are offered every Tuesday live or watch anytime via Youtube. However, you have to complete the assessment by Friday to get the certificate. I have successfully taken the assessments after each session and am able to download the certificate right away.
Another option is https://www.prehealthshadowing.com/sessions/. I have not attended these but I’m sure this is still a great opportunity. Next session is today at 4:30PM. There are other sessions available throughout the month.
A lot of reddit posts are not helpful, but this is not one of those posts! Here’s a great writeup of how one student found shadowing opportunities for themselves. With COVID-19 in full swing, these methods might be especially important now.
I recently started shadowing at Rothman Orthopaedics! I had an appointment here in October 2020 and asked my doctor if there was any way I could shadow him. After a few months of no response, I brought it up to him again in January 2021 when I had my follow-up visit. This time, he gave me the contact info for the office administrative assistant. Try asking doctors you already see to shadow them and be persistent!
