    Shadowing? Archived Message

    Posted by dustin on January 11, 2009, 2:10 am

    Hey guys...quick question. I'm in undergraduate just making sure I have everything covered. I'm conflicted between M.D. or A.A. right now, as they both have perks. I think shadowing both will give me a little bit better feel for each career. My question though is how did you guys go about getting shadowing? Can I just pretty much ask a hospital to let me shadow and they'll ok it? or is it more of a political, I have to know somebody to have the opportunity type deal?

    Also, I have an M.D. I'm wanting to shadow and I was thinking about just asking her later this week when I see her again. Do they usually take offense to this or are they usually open about it?

    Thanks for all the help guys!
