We are interested in students who are eager to learn. We are willing to allow the student (within reason) to tailor the experience to their goals. The choices include shadowing one doctor specifically or multiple doctors throughout the day, improving technical skills including iv catheter placement or blood draws, helping with daily surgeries and dentals, rounding with the hospitalized patients or time with the specialists. There will be an active discussion about the individual cases.
Full supervision at all times during the 5 (8-10 hour) days each week.
