"You would never buy a Ferrari without test driving it first. Physician shadowing is your test drive to a career in medicine"
-Dr. Carol Teitz

School of Medicine
In order to make an informed decision before applying to medical school, it is crucial you spend time "test driving" future career options. Volunteering with patients, conducting clinical research, or working as a medical office assistant may develop your understanding of the field, but is NOT considered shadowing. Shadowing means specifically observing physician-patient interaction.
