Career shadowing experiences are offered to students in high school or beyond for the purpose of observing job responsibilities and procedures associated with a particular discipline or healthcare career. The duration of a shadowing experience is not more than 2 days or a maximum of 16 hours.
At this time, applications for career shadowing are being accepted only from students enrolled in schools of podiatric medicine who are interested in shadowing our podiatric residency program or students interested in shadowing in our physical therapy department. We anticipate accepting new applications for other career shadowing opportunities in January 2014.
