“This internship affected my future career goals in many ways. I’ve had meetings and spoken with physicians and HR’s via Microsoft teams and it’s done nothing but make me even more excited to pursue the career I hope to have in the future as a gynecologist.”

Shadowing Observation

Due to the pandemic, all shadowing and observation experiences have been suspended.  

There is no immediate plan to re-open shadowing experiences for students at any level and these experiences remain at a very low system priority during our pandemic response. At this time, we are concentrating on providing experiences to those students that are in pursuit of academic credit at the collegiate level.
