"SHADOWING MADE EASY"
ONE OF THE BIGGEST ROADBLOCKS TO SHADOWING IS KNOWING HOW AND WHERE TO START. HERE, WE MAKE IT EASY. FOLLOW EACH STEP FOR THE CORRESPONDING INSTITUTION.
Providence St. Mary Hospital and Medical Group
Email the physician to determine availability to shadow. Inform the physician that you are in the process of completing the required shadowing paperwork.
Complete the following documents as outlined below and return via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (509.897.5108), or in-person (401 W. Poplar St., Walla Walla). Once your paperwork is received and reviewed, you will be notified if approved for shadowing. If approved, you will be advised of your orientation date (orientations are typically held on the 3rd Friday of each month, 12:45-1:30 p.m.).
