While many students may have an interest in pursuing a career in medicine, few have an opportunity to experience a “day in the life” of a healthcare professional. SMGF’s 1-On-1 Shadowing program allows students 18 and older (who are interested in pursuing a career in medicine) to shadow a SMG healthcare professional in a specialty area of interest for a day, providing unique insights into doctor-patient interactions, testing, exams and procedures.
“The experience I had with Dr. Dardanello was quite like no other,” said Amanda, program participant. “I had so much fun shadowing, which reinforced my desire to become a pediatrician.”
- Only one (1), single-day shadowing opportunity per calendar year is allowed per student.
- SMG is not a teaching facility and therefore ALL shadowing experiences are observation only.
- Due to physician availability and volume of requests, we will try to match as many requests as possible but completion and submission of an application and required paperwork does not guarentee that a shadowing match will be fulfilled.
All 1-on-1 Shadowing experiences are currently suspended due to COVID-19.
Please check back periodically for updates.
