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.

Due to the popularity of our Career Shadowing program, we are only able to accept the first 10 applications per month.   If you do not hear from us by the end of this month that you apply, you will need to reapply.  

**Applications for career shadowing are being accepted 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.
